A little later than planned but yesterday we got snowed in so I spent the day with the little one making snow people and generally having a day off!
Mr Fire and I are still going strong with our Matched Betting trial. He is totally sold on the idea of it being able to bring in some extra income although I’m not too convinced. Its seems really complicated and I seem to have an unwillingness to want to learn. I think I’m so afraid of making a mistake that I’m trying to protect myself but If I don’t try then I will never be able to reach FIRE as its all about trial and error right?

Nothing for that day. Mr Fire was too ill to go to work and spent the day in bed. I checked Oddsmonkey every so often but there didn’t seem to be anything really happening.

Not a big win for today. I am finding it very hard to make money whilst being gubbed but I’m going to get a new bank account set up and reread all about not getting gubbed to help preserve my accounts. I did do the Coral bet club and made just a small loss of 60p.

A good day! No mistakes and I think I am getting into the swing of things now. Reading the comments from my last post, I do think I will phase out the arbing I do (I call it Oddsmatch if you haven’t noticed as I’m silly like that) and move more into bet clubs and offers.

Sunday was a big family day filled with country walks and multiple parks so no Matched Betting too place.

No Matched Betting here as I spent alot of the day reading all about Matched Betting and Arbing. It seems like I haven’t been doing “true” Matched Betting at all but instead just Arbing which is only for the experienced and those with specialised software. That’s was an eye opener, but the positive from it is simple. For someone doing the wrong thing, my total last week was £20.50 which isn’t bad for someone doing something wrong.
My plan is to start again with my bookie accounts and stick to sign up offers and bet clubs from now on.
Mr Fires total? I’d guess about £40 again. He doesn’t keep records of it as he has it in his brain.
