are you frugal or practical? (or both?)

I'd say I'm practical. I usually shop consignment and thrift stores for the younger kids clothes (and mine too). Even for the older kids, who are now into name brands, I refuse to pay the sales price. I'll take them to Plato's Closet (a consignment shop for current style/name brand clothes for teens/young adults) or have them look online at the clearance specials for the brands they like and then see if they can find coupon codes.
As for groceries, it becomes a little more difficult. The types of food we eat are relatively expensive, especially when you figure in so many people.
When it comes to stuff like electric/cable/gas/etc., I tend to go for comfort more than cost. If I'm hot or cold, I don't mind running the ac's or the heater and then leaving them on so that everyone's comfortable.
