Too much to count... Luckily I switched to tap water so it's cheaper and I have a lot more of it.
2-3 gallons a day...sometimes more depending on the temps and dryness...
I have maybe a hundred CP's or a little better in a dozen or two various sized containers, many of which freely drain. I spend .39 cents per gallon and use 5 - 10 gallons per week for normal watering. That is much much more when repotting or potting new plants. I purchase R/O from the blue booths at Walmart and other grocery store in the area. Where I am going currently the water tests at 6ppm TDS.
EDIT: My other plants get watered from "softened" tap water which tests around 860ppm TDS. Sorry other plants!

Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
What is this snow you speak of, Sir?
I use rainwater. About 12 gallons a month between the outdoor CPs and indoor CPs. Zero cost. Haven't had to buy distilled in a long time thankfully.

After calculating water usage per day from my misting unit, I would say ...probably 4-5$ a month. I buy a gallon worth of distilled water and fill the misting unit up.
I use about a gallon a day.... but I work for a pharmaceutical manufacturer, and can take purified water home, after filling our paperwork and getting signatures.
I use ~20 gallons a month. If it's rained that month that means its free, but if it hasn't, I buy RO water locally for about $0.30 a gallon. So I spend anywhere between nothing and $6.
