Does anyone know of any good websites or books for mom's of large families? I"m looking for some advice from mom's who have successfully kept their house organized and decluttered while living frugally (and green!)

Here's me I married then we had dd15 , dd11 , ds10 , and then and now we and I blog!

Sorry, I don't have one for you, but I hope someone does because I could use it.

Here is a Yahoo group for large families. I'm on no email, but it looked like it could come in handy.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LargeFamilyLogistics/

This is a good blog about larger families, some organization, some not. They just switched websites, it may have a link to get to back posts on the old site, I'm not sure.

Does Table for Eight include any organizational tips? I bet it does. I haven't gotten a copy yet, but I plan to. It's by Meagan Francis. Has anyone read it?

www.lotsofkids.com is one website I enjoy very much, and there are tips there. Not sure about "green" tips but I'm on the same path as you are with that.
