Is Kate Gosselin A Coupon Clipping Expert?

Is Kate Gosselin A Coupon Clipping Expert?

Who better to take coupon-clipping advice from than a single mom raising 8 kids, right? Though Kate Gosselin’s bank account probably looks significantly different than most of ours, she’s definitely been around the block when it comes to scrimping and saving to provide for her large family.

So it makes sense that the “Kate Plus 8” star has a new gig blogging for a website called Coupon Cabin where she offers her money-saving advice to families across the country. The reality mom has also been photographed in the past using coupons for personal shopping and tells E!, “No matter how much money you have, it's just smart to use coupons. It's like free money in your pocket.”

Gosselin says she started clipping coupons before becoming a mom and apparently the habit stuck. Gosselin explains, “One week, I remember saving more than half my grocery bill that week with coupons. I was beyond thrilled.” And, as many couponing pros out there already know, an experience like that is all you need to become hooked on couponing for life.

Kate Gosselin’s first blog post will be about holiday shopping and debuts on Coupon Cabin November 22nd.

What do you think of Kate Gosselin’s new gig as a coupon-clipping expert?

Would you take this mom’s money-saving advice?

    I can't even begin to describe my total dislike for this idea. She definitely didn't use coupons in the show and I feel like she just "needs" to be in the spotlight

    I agree with you, Purplemommi . Kate doesn't have a show anymore,so now she is trying to get another by grabbing at couponing.She knows that our ears perk up when we hear words like "coupons","deals",saving",and 'free". IMO opinion,she will do whatever it takes to stay in the limelight..she addicted to the attention.

    I guess that makes me number 5! That's a big NO! Anything for attention and I never saw her with coupons or promoting coupons either.

    Someone needs to tell Kate her 15 minutes of "fame" is up. She'll do anything to keep her name in the media. I just wish she would put as much effort into raising her kids as she does into being a famewhore.

    THAT WOULD BE A VERY BIG NO!

    Sure she is - now that it meets her needs. She is most probably being compensated by this website for submitting blogs and of course loads of free additional advertising for the both of them. The saddest part is that plenty of women will tune in to read her blog. I actually enjoyed her show - when it was about the kids not about her.

    I have to agree with everyone. I feel as though she just wants to keep her name in the news and couponing is part of the plan
