Kate Gosselin’s New Job Revealed!

Kate Gosselin's New Job Revealed!

Kate Gosselin has a new job and it’s not going to be on reality television. The mother of 11-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 7-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel is now a blogger for a site called couponcabin.com.

She tells E! News, “No matter how much money you have, it’s just smart to use coupons. It’s like free money in your pocket.”

The former Kate Plus 8 star says she started clipping coupons before she had kids but made it a habit once she became a mom.

She revealed, “One week, I remember saving more than half my grocery bill that week with coupons. I was beyond thrilled.”

Kate’s first blog post will debut on November 22 and will be about shopping for the holidays.

In the meantime, she and ex-husband Jon Gosselin have to worry about a past Jon & Kate Plus 8 editor who was arrested on child pornography.

Jon, who hired an attorney, recently said: “We filmed potty training. Any parent would be freaked out by this, because the cameraman definitely shot the kids getting ready for bed being showered and being changed.”

    Oh goodie. She can’t manage the million dollar salaries of a brood of 8 (the family is broke, according to Ms. Gosselin), and I am supposed to trust her ability to manage the coupon savings arena. Ahh, don’t think so.

    Many people facing rising food costs are considering coupons as a way to save money on their grocery bills including myself who uses smart source or Printapons websites to get daily alerts.

    Well, there goes another coupon site I won’t be visiting. Anything that woman hawks isn’t worth my time. There are plenty of coupon sites without that one.

    hope the money was worth the risk. Greed, at your children’s expense. How sad.

  • Grace

    So why can’t she go back to nursing and then supplement her income (which she claims wouldn’t be enough to support her children) with side jobs like the coupon site. If she truly doesn’t have any money left from the shows and the books (and I don’t believe that for a second) then there’s no reason why she couldn’t support them on a nurse’s salary, along with child support and smaller jobs like the coupon website. She’s just greedy and lazy and is looking for a way to get out of having to do any actual work.

      Let’s say someone offered you a job blogging about coupons and would pay you $100,000 (just guessing here). Would you do it? Of course you would. So why is she “greedy and lazy” and “looking for a way to get out of having to do any actual work”.

      You do realize there are thousands thousands of bloggers, lots and lots of which are Moms who do it as their sole source of income? Are they greedy and lazy, too?

      • Grace

        You’re being naive to assume she’s getting paid $100,000 to blog about coupons. But let’s assume your estimate is accurate. The public is not always going to give a crap about this woman, so if she truly can’t afford to support her kids on a nurse’s salary then she should be doing the coupon thing and the nursing job, and then put that money away for when the jobs like blogging dry up. The public is not always going to care about her, so she should be thinking ahead.

        And yes, I think a person who makes their living solely off a blog is lazy.

      working 13 hour days for the PA nurses income of only $17 an hour isnt possible for a option for a mother of 8. The cost of child care is more than she makes in an hour. Know your facts before you judge her choice. I am sure she can work from home as a blogger saving alot of the cost of child care and probably makes a lot more than nursing. Nursing is also physically exhausting leaving her nothing to give her 8 children at the end of the day.

    I’ve never liked Kate much BUT I can see her dispensing some good advice on how to be thrifty. There’s no way they made it in the very early days with eight kids without her knowing some ways to save money.

  • Anonymous

    Always unhappy. She is off TV and trying to make a living for her kids. Still everyone is complaining. It is time for all people to move on and leave her alone.

    • Grace

      She doesn’t want to be left alone. She’s still trying to get back on TV, and she’s still going on talk shows. If she wants us all to leave her alone then she needs to stop going on shows like The View.

      • Janna

        And the minute, the very SECOND even, that millions of people STOP tuning in to see her and hear her, every single show will stop having her on.

        These shows put her on because she’s a draw. I’ll be damned if I can figure out why, but nobody puts someone on a show that causes people NOT to watch.

    Aren’t the girls 11 now?

  • SMH

    WEll KG side. I think its smart for anyone to use coupons. But as far as those couponing shows go I think they are going to ruin it for people who are just even trying to save a little bit of money on each bill and not spend our time clearing the shelves of a supermarket or expecting to actually walk away with a negative bill! Some of these people are crazy and I hope most of them donate as much as they can bc nobody can consume that much food before it goes bad!

    It’s a shame that blogging about coupons offers a higher salary than nursing…or teaching, for that matter. Don’t get me wrong- coupons are essential during these hard economic times- but sitting in front of your computer versus cleaning up bodily fluids, balancing a number of patients, tracking charts…??

    • Grace

      We don’t necessarily know that she is making more money from blogging than from being a nurse. That excuse about how she can’t go back to nursing because she can’t support her kids on that was a load of crap. She’s not going back to nursing because that would require her to actually work.

    • Janna

      If that’s all you think that blogging is, then you should probably do a little research.

  • just wonderin’

    If her popularity here is any indication, I’m surprised a company would take on the huge risk of hiring her. What is it that she brings to the table, exactly?

    • dumbstruck

      Whoever made the hiring decision has more money than brains.

    Leave the girl alone, at least she is trying to take care of her large family. I want to know , what is wrong with the father of all of those kids, he needs to step up to the position of father hood and help her much moore than he does. He’s scott free and she is trying to keep the children together and doing a good job.DON’T speak negative of her, be supportive or keep your mouth shut!

    • Grace

      Jon pays child support and has visitation, so I have no idea what you’re talking about when you say he doesn’t help. Additionally, Kate went to court to have Jon’s visitation reduced and then went around whining that he doesn’t spend enough time with the kids.

      And get over yourself, we can say negative things about her if we want to. We don’t need permission from you. If you want to worship this horrible woman who exploited her children for money and went through life treating others like garbage then go ahead. But the rest of us do not have to join you.

    • Grace

      What do you mean where is their father? Kate took him to court to have his visitation reduced and then sits around whining about how he doesn’t help. She would have more help if she hadn’t shot herself in the foot on that one. And he pays child support. So you are sadly misinformed on that situation.

      And no we don’t have to be supportive of her. I will never be supportive of a woman who exploited her children and sold their privacy to the highest bidder and then used the money her children had earned to get plastic surgery, hair extensions, fake nails, etc. If you want to blindly worship a person would behave in such a vile manner then go right ahead, but the rest of us do not have to join you. Your belief that you get to dictate to all of us what we are and aren’t allowed to post about is astonishing – it makes it easy for me to see why you like Kate so much, you seem as arrogant as she is.

        He used to fame to start cheating on his wife. I really can’t decide which one of them is worse.

    Anonymous 05:29 pm@ Please shut up if you don’t know what you’re talking about because its already been proven by curt document that Jon pays child support and has shard custody of the kids and what should he do quite his regular job 9 to 5 and whore out his kids on TV like their mother? I mean you really must be smoking that stuff if you believe even for a minute that 1. Kate is doing anything this for the Kids 2. That she has no money and is poor, so why don’t you take your own advice and keep your mouth shut.
