Kate Gosselin: Goodbye TLC, hello extreme couponing

Nov 2, 2011 at 11:09 p.m. ET

It might not be the reality television show Kate Gosselin wants, but it's still a job. The reality television mom is now going to be a celebrity coupon blogger.

It looks like Kate Gosselin won't be forced to go back to her old nursing roots after all. Instead, she just scored a new job to keep her busy and keep her name in the headlines. Kate Gosselin's new gig is not another reality show as you may have guessed. Instead, the same woman who spends $7,000 on haircuts is now going to teach us how to save money by blogging about couponing.

Gosselin, who hasn't had much to do since TLC canceled her show Kate Plus 8 back in August, will serve as a contributing blogger who offers money-saving advice for readers at the CouponCabin website. The site, which offers online coupon codes, printables, and grocery coupons, aims to help readers save money on everything from groceries to big ticket items, such as television screens, home cinema systems and more.

According to a press release, Gosselin will be contributing a weekly post on topics like how to stretch a budget for a large family, holiday shopping tips, gift ideas and more. She will also be sharing coupons from CouponCabin on her own blog.

"Kate has embraced coupons her entire life," said Jackie Warrick, President of CouponCabin.com. "We look forward to sharing the unique insight she has gained over the years."

Kate's first blog will run on Tuesday, Nov. 22 and will discuss how to navigate the busiest holiday shopping day of the year, Black Friday, Nov. 25. She will discuss tips and tricks about how to score the best deals on great holiday gifts.

We wonder if Gosselin will give her readers advice on how to buy a similar Audi TT sports car she's been seen driving around near her Pennsylvania home.
