Times have gotten so tough for Kate Gosselin that she's started cutting … coupons, that is.

According to E!, the unemployed single mother of eight — who once earned a reported $250,000 per episode of TLC's Kate Plus 8 — has been learning some important lessons in frugality.

"No matter how much money you have, it's just smart to use coupons," she said. "It's like free money in your pocket!"

Kate's extreme couponing has paid off in more ways than one, it would seem. The one-time Dancing With the Stars contestant has finally landed herself a new gig — contributing blogger for CouponCabin.com. Her first post is scheduled for Nov. 22.

“I’m thrilled to lend my expertise to CouponCabin.com, where you can easily find the best deals on practically everything."

And who says there's no such thing as life after reality TV?!
