You're doing great but have you ever thought about looking at ways of earning a passive income (ie, less manual work each day!)

Well it's fair to say that I lost track of all this when I started my new job!

Have still been working away on Leapforce and surveys but had to stop the Matched Betting as money was needed in my accounts for wedding purchases. Amazingly with my fiancee joining in with some of the survey sites we have just about managed to get everything sorted without needing to borrow!

The wedding is in just NINE days now which is very scary indeed! A big thanks to everybody on here who gave ideas or helped in anyway :)

Wow!!

Was just thinking the other day about how things were going as hadn't seen you in a while.

It's fantastic to hear you haven't had to borrow any money for the wedding due to all your online earnings. REALLY inspiring stuff!

Well now that the wedding has come and gone and the honeymoon is just a distant memory it's time for me to get back into earning some extra money. Been doing a fair bit of MB for the World Cup so far but a risky one yesterday sees me with less of a profit that I'd have hoped.

Ah well. Back to the grind with surveys and Leapforce.

Have taken a look back at the 2 main sites I joined since coming on here and the totals made -

Prolific Academic - £281.21
Leapforce - $1155.27
That's since August last year. Not too bad a haul.

My next target? Just to make some overpayments into my mortgage!

Hope you had a fantastic wedding.

How are those post-honeymoon blues working out for you? I HATED them and felt totally directionless post wedding for the first few months since everything leads up to it!!!

Yeah the wedding was a great day thanks - just went too quickly!

I've been back from the honeymoon a week now. All I can say is that Aberdeen isn't as good as The Maldives...

Now getting back into studying and trying to earn more money so should perk up soon!

Yeah the day sure does go quickly, snap your fingers and it's the end of the night before you know it!

Hopefully you can get back into the earning money online stuff easily!

So yesterday was a decent day. With the William Hill Scratchcard I was given a £5 casino bonus which I managed to turn into £27.50 on Blackjack. Took me about 12 hours on and off to complete the wagering!

Prolific Wise it was £9.20 in surveys but a nice £2.77 reward took that up to £11.97.

A bet on France to beat Peru returned £8 as well as the usual assortment of surveys. Would say that I easily cleared £50 yesterday!

Today I've a £5 free bet which is returning £3.19 but not a lot else to report. Away to London tonight for a Foo Fighters gig so need to hope there's some decent MB offers coming up!

I got lucky with a free bet last week and won £350 which has come in handy for some home decorating....great...

Now though my wife and I have booked a holiday to America at the start of February next year and I'm wanting to earn my spending money. I won't need this much but my target is £1000 and I'll start a count tomorrow.

£0/£1000.

It's my wife's 30th so we're doing a tour of cities she's always wanted to visit. New York - San Fran - LA - Vegas.

I got off to the best possible start yesterday

£250 back from Keiran Trippier! Possibly the only Scotsman who cheered that goal.....in the past 3 England matches I've now made £600 from free bets!

Surveys I didn't get a chance to do as I was studying at night so my total stands at £250.65/£1000.

Usually yes but I've been feeling lucky with the free bets on the England games lately so have taken a risk. Back to normal matched betting from now on as there's no way I'll be that lucky again!

So the weekend was a successful one largely down to the World Cup final and some matched betting. I also got lucky on Inspector Gadget at William Hill (stake £5 get £5). The non survey side of things brought in £41.11.

Survey wise was abysmal but that was largely down to spending the majority of the weekend trying to decorate the kitchen. Well I say decorate - this weekend was the stripping wallpaper, sanding skirting boards and painting cupboards stage. Currently our fridge/freezer is in the living room and we're living off scraps!

So it was just £2.20 gained in surveys taking the weekend total to £43.31. £290.96/£1000

Obviously the World Cup is over now so I'm expecting my matched betting to slow down a bit now. Once the kitchen is decorated I'll be starting the casino offers over at Oddsmonkey and we'll just take it from there!

Should add I'm still doing Leapforce but will only include any payments received in the count here. Aiming for £100 a month with that.

EDIT - at lunchtime today I took advantage of the William Hill offer for Anchorman. Wager £10 and get £5. £30 back. £320.96/£1000

Another £10 back from Inspector Gadget this morning coupled with £2.20 from surveys yesterday means the running total has reached £333.16/£1000.

1/3 of the way there!
Surprisingly the majority of my surveys came from QMEE yesterday which normally is a waste of time. Couple of Curious Cat surveys also - the pick being a 1 minute survey which was 1 question for 1 pence!

It's fair to say that I'm a fan of this Inspector Gadget offer that William Hill have on the go - it's on until Monday! £10.22 made off of this this morning despite not even getting a bonus round for the first time. Can't complain!

Elsewhere there was an amazing 66p from Sky Bet (free spins) and I cashed out a £2 Amazon voucher from I-Say. Survey wise it was £2.57 taking the days total to £13.45.

£346.61/£1000.

So yesterday on Inspector Gadget I had no bonus rounds but won a tenner.

Today I have 2 bonus rounds.....loss of a tenner as I stupidly tried to chase my losses. Both bonus rounds resulted in a mystery win of a total of £3.

Yesterday was a decent enough day survey wise though thanks to Prolific. Made £4.29 there taking my overall total to £330.90/£1000.
Back down to under a 1/3 of the way there. Jon is getting the blame for jinxing me above! ;)

The luck has officially disappeared from Inspector Gadget for me. A small loss of £2.08 this morning which puts a dent in the £3.35 I earned from surveys yesterday! Still £1.27 and I'm up about £50 from spins this week.

Sunday I'm determined to actually try some casino offers and see how I get on. Still can't complain at £332.17/£1000. Leapforce is going well this month with 6 hours and 47 minutes worked to date. My most ever is 12 hours 29 minutes so I basically need to work 6 hours in 11 days.....32 minutes a day....I can beat my record hopefully!
