If you were wondering what Kate Gosselin would do, with Kate Plus 8 canceled this year, worry no more. She has found a new job—as a coupon blogger. Yep, that’s right. Kate Gosselin, coupon mom.
Beginning November 22nd, Kate will be a weekly contributor to CouponCabin.com—offering shopping tips, money saving advice, and budget gift ideas. Her first post will discuss tips for navigating Black Friday.
Um, seriously? Kate Gosselin isn’t the type of person found standing in line with me on Black Friday. I’m having a hard time buying into the whole idea of Kate as a bargain shopper.
I just can’t for one second believe that Kate has focused on frugal living and couponing while making millions on TLC. Oh, sure, she may have been “seen recently using coupons” but that doesn’t make her a couponer.
As a lifelong couponer and longtime frugal blogger, I’m incredibly disappointed in Coupon Cabin’s choice. Like me, frugal bloggers all over the internet work hard to share money saving ideas, shopping strategies, and bargain finds, based on our real life experiences.
Yet, the woman who recently tweeted about her $700 grocery bill will now be crowned Coupon Queen.
What do you think? Will you take money saving advice from Kate Gosselin?

What do I think? A farce! Just because she’s fallen on ‘hard times’ doesn’t qualify her to share advice on anything remotely resembling couponing, frugal living, deal shopping or the like.
I (and you as well) know women who are caring for their large families being better stewards of their money than Kate Goslin can ever be. Just because she used coupons before she had her children doesn’t qualify her as an expert.
It’s all about exploiting the voyeurism that has become the ‘Kate + 8’ brand. That Coupon Cabin thinks this is a good strategic move to help their readers is a slap in the face to all the men and women who have supported that site with actual helpful information.
Using a Bed Bath & Beyond coupon and a few manufacturer coupons at the grocery store do not instantly qualify anyone to dispense advice about saving money. This is a lame and desperate attempt by Kate Goslin to maintain relevance and try to appeal to the TLC extreme couponing audience.
