It's been more than two years since Kate Gosselin and her brood of eight – twins Mady and Cara, 12, and sextuplets Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel, Leah and Aaden, 9 – appeared on their own TV series, and the single mom is decidedly humble about her circumstances.
"I'm living very carefully these days," Gosselin tells PEOPLE in its latest issue, on newsstands Friday.
Now that her TLC reality show is a thing of the past, the matriarch is making ends meet "piecing and patching together" an income from a variety of projects, she says.

Kate Gosselin is looking for her plus-one, and she's hoping to find him on the same place she debuted her plus-eight: on TV.
The divorced mother, 37, has signed on to shoot a dating show, which has yet to be picked up by a network, reports E! News.
"She is ready to find love again and to move on from her past," a source tells E! "She's excited. This is a chance to start something new."

Three years after his headline-making, acrominious divorce, Jon Gosselin says he and Kate are getting along now – and he's sorry for the way he behaved post-split, he tells PEOPLE in a new interview.
"I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn't want done to me," he says, referring to the steady stream of women he dated after their split.
He also accepts his share of responsibility for the divorce. "I was passive-aggressive," he says. "Then I'd get mad, but I was the one who wasn't communicating."
Now, he says, times have changed.

It's still just Kate plus eight.
Kate Gosselin revealed Wednesday on Dr. Drew's Lifechangers that she's still single, though she's open to the idea of dating.
"I am lonely," says the former reality star mom, 36. "I clean up the house, put kids to bed, and there I sit. Ideally I would find that person – I don't know if I feel ready for that."
Asked if she has a love life, she replied: "No. I'm too busy. I think a lot of my friends, who are being constructive, say, 'Gosh, who are you going to meet that is going to be able to deal with eight kids?' My answer is always if they can deal with eight kids in our situation, it probably will be the person."

Have no fear: Kate Gosselin will be back on TV, the reality star and current PEOPLE cover girl repeatedly made clear Monday morning.
With Monday night bringing to a close her TLC show Kate Plus 8 – and ex-husband Jon Gosselin imploring Kate to get a normal life – the reality star said in a live interview with Matt Lauer on Today that she's concerned for her show's "devastated" fans whom, she said, must feel like they are losing their favorite next-door neighbor.
As for her own reaction to ending a six-year run in front of the cameras, she admitted to mixed emotions. "There is some relief," she said, [but also] there is sadness, because it's the end of an era."
There is also the fear of what future opportunities might – or, now, might not – exist for her children. With her role as a mother being to "give them the best opportunities available," she sees TV as able to provide that.

Former reality star Jon Gosselin has some harsh words for his ex-wife Kate Gosselin following her PEOPLE cover story, in which she expressed concern for her family's future.
"Reality TV is not a career," Jon said in an new interview with RumorFix.com. "Get back to a normal life – a simple life."
Following TLC's cancelation of her Kate Plus 8, the reality star told PEOPLE she's "freaking out" about providing for her eight kids.
Jon, who says that he continues to pay child support and sees his kids "a lot," isn't worried.

As two of Kate Gosselin's brood continue their hiatus from the classroom, the mother of eight wants to make one thing clear: They were not expelled.
"The school would never use that word," Gosselin, 35, tells PEOPLE. "[Collin and Alexis] were not expelled. [The school] did not feel like they could meet their needs anymore, so it was decided they should leave, for now."
Collin and Alexis, both 6, are both seeing a private tutor who teaches them an "identical curriculum" until they are ready to return to school. But for now, Gosselin says the challenges are not just academic – they're personal.

It's been a rough couple of years for the Gosselins.
Two of the family's eight children were recently expelled from school, but mom Kate Gosselin tells Entertainment Tonight that they're keeping up with their lessons and "the goal is to get them back into school as soon as possible."
Explaining what happened with Collin and Alexis, both 6, Kate says, "The pressure was getting to them. You have the divorce anger mixed in with that."
Last year, Kate and Jon Gosselin, who starred in the TLC reality series Jon and Kate Plus 8, went through a high-profile and contentious divorce after 10 years of marriage.

It has been one year since the marriage of Kate and Jon Gosselin began to crumble in plain view – and Kate acknowledges there have been difficult moments for their brood of eight.
"[Nine-year-old daughter Cara] was upset with me because I forgot to sign them up for something at school," Kate, 35, tells PEOPLE in a new cover story. "I said, 'Cara, I had a really rough year. This is a new year. You've got to give me that. Let's start over.' So I've really worked to keep my word with them."

Jon Gosselin has fired his new attorney – the one who called Kate an "absentee parent" and who two weeks ago filed legal papers seeking full custody of the kids for Jon.
"Kate, her attorneys and I are moving forward to work out things privately and amicably," Jon Tweeted Thursday morning.
And, as for his ex-legal representative? "Mr. Anthony List Sr., Esq., is not my representing attorney; I terminated him on April 15, 2010. He has no legal right to speak to the press or anyone on my behalf."
List had told PEOPLE that he was a longtime friend of Jon's late father, Tom, and promised the elder Gosselin shortly before his death that he would help Jon if ever the need arose.
