The Worst News To Hit Coupon Blogging: Kate Gosselin


So, Coupon Cabin (yes, them again!) just announced some exciting news! Kate Gosselin, yes, THAT Kate Gosselin, will begin writing a blog for the site about couponing.

According to MSNBC:

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

Her first blog post debuts on Nov. 22 about shopping for the holidays.

The onetime “Dancing With the Stars” contestant said she started clipping coupons before she had any of her kids, but the habit definitely took off when she became a mom. “One week, I remember saving more than half my grocery bill that week with coupons,” she said. “I was beyond thrilled.”

As you can imagine, bloggers that specialize in sharing coupons and teaching others how to use them had some pretty strong reactions.

Other bloggers greeted the news with equal joy.

What do you think? Is hiring a reality television star as a coupon blogger a smart idea?
