Matched Betting

Number one recommended earner was matched betting, so we’ll be trying it out throughout July and we will get back to you! We’re using a common favourite, Profit Accumulator, and right now they have 7 days of their premium membership for just £1 (£26.99 a month thereafter) and we’re going to take advantage of that and learn everything we can but so far, we’re signing up for the annual membership once it’s ended.

What is matched betting?

Basically; making profit from the free bets and other offers from bookmakers, turning them into real cash!

Recognised as one of the most effective ways of making money online in your own time, some people have been able to turn it into their full-time job and what’s more, it’s totally TAX-FREE!

Is it Gambling?

No. With matched betting, you eliminate that risk element as any bet we place is ‘laid off’ at the exchange.

There are some great free tutorials over at Profit Accumulator, which we use, they explain it all really well.

I’m relatively new to this but so far this month (July and today is the 13th!) I’ve got £10 out of surveys via Swagbucks, rewarded in two £5 paypal vouchers and transferred out to my ‘Surveys’ savings pot to keep track of.

I’m also playing one of those semi-annoying build a village games, but it’s free and you get more points so why not!

What is Swagbucks? is the one of the more common loyalty and consumer rewards program, it is a free rewards service get members can get free gift cards or cash for the everyday activities they’re already completing online like searching the web, playing games, watching videos, or shopping online where you’ll make money through cash back rebates.

You’ll earn rewards in points, called SB, and you can redeem your points for gift cards or cash. 100 SB points is £1 in rewards.

Support our Camp Sites

We know the allure of the ‘wild’ spot, the off the beaten track hidden gems and the secret park up but these small businesses have lost a lot over lockdown so even if you are planning an ‘off grid’ trip, consider allocating a night or two in a camp site – doing our bit a few weeks ago at Bowbrook Lodges Holiday Park – they have great little pods and safari tents too!!

Some of the new additions at Bowbrook;

  • We’ve added an extra washing up sink for the lucky dishwasher 🙂
  • Increased privacy between lodge site and caravan site
  • New ramp to the grey waste to make it a little easier on the elbow grease
  • Planted 2500 trees and shrubs along the road
  • Planted 250 fruit trees including pear, cherry, apple, plum and damson
  • Improved signage, more to come
  • Decreased dog prices and put up a dog waste bin
  • New for 2021: 3 luxury glamping pods
  • Introduced midweek lower prices
  • Improved the wifi coverage and strength 

Planned for 2021

  • Motor home grey waste disposal
  • Lakes, wetlands and a Nature Reserve onsite planned with Worcester Wildlife Trust
  • A 1km hard path around the estate for walking and cycling
  • Boutique food at the weekend and a tuck shop

Power, fridge & loo are in!

Only a few days until the Adventure Overland Show now, we’re basically tidying up and pulling a few things together, we’ve got power, the fridge freezer and loo fitted as well as another wall – so with some soft furnishings to be added, we’ll be good to hit the road on Friday.

We wanted to talk a little bit in this week’s episode about easing the pressure a little in major projects like this one, otherwise you run the risk of resenting it, burning out, forgetting how awesome you are and why you’re doing it in the first place and also don’t judge your progress by other people’s highlight reels – not even ours!

Camera Bag Upgrades!

Welcome to the family little one…

We’ve invested in some new kit! The Osmo Mobile 3 was good, but it’s a hefty bit of kit and we just couldn’t get on with it, so we’ve downsized to the DJI Pocket 2 – and it’s a beauty!

Small, compact and super light, we’re looking forward to testing it out at the Adventure Overland Show soon.

We went for the creator combo with the extra few bits, because we’re creators obv and we actually intend to use this properly.

A bit more info (taken from Amazon) below…

About this item

  • POCKET-SIZED: DJI Pocket 2 fits perfectly in your hand, bag, or pocket so that you can take it anywhere. When your journey begins or something suddenly catches your eye, Pocket 2 is ready to capture it all
  • MOTORIZED STABILIZATION: A 3-axis gimbal stabilizes the camera for smooth video on the move. This technology is also great for creative photos like handheld long-exposure shots
  • ACTIVETRACK 3.0: No matter how you move, Pocket 2 keeps you and your friends in the shot with ActiveTrack 3.0
  • AI EDITOR: Not into editing? AI Editor automatically combines your clips with transitions and music to create share-worthy content
  • IMAGE QUALITY: We packed the DJI Pocket 2 camera with photo and video abilities that let you create share-worthy content and make moments last forever. 1/1.7-Inch Sensor, 64MP Photo, 4K/60fps Video, Hybrid AF 2.0
  • DJI Matrix Stereo: DJI Matrix Stereo technology records audio with so much real detail, it lets you relive the scene
  • Lens type: Fisheye

FYI – doesn’t come with an SD card do you need to get that separately.

We can’t guarantee our content, or Craig’s dancing will improve, but we’re going to enjoy capturing some more footage for the upcoming episodes when we finally take Miss P out on the road!!

A splash of colour…

We bought wallpaper – and we used spray glue to put it up – forgot how that stuff gets EVERYWHERE.

Van Life Prep: Slow it TF down

Slow TF Down… 

Hustle Life has become a badge of honour, pushing ourselves to burn out all too often, making us sick and tired. 

Some people thrive by being busy, some work all hours of the night, but maybe slower in the morning, or vice versa – all go first thing then afternoon naps (Kerry!)

We can spend so much time just ‘doing’ that we’re not really ‘achieving’ anything – and is what you are doing contributing to your goals? 

It is not how many years in your life, but how much life in your years!

– a good few people actually

The point of this one is to slow it down enough to notice what’s around us, to take the time to stop and notice.  To slow but also to quieten and regain true focus

Some ideas; 

  • Get out for a walk, locally around the block or a more scenic hike but put the phone on airplane mode and go – for us, this is when the creativity really flows when we are outdoors and not distracted by the nonsense
  • Cook something from scratch, set the scene, make the table, no phones, really savour your meal 
  • If you must be busy – have a clear out at home, this is great for your physical space but also mentally letting go
  • Getting focused: proper planning rather than blindly doing – vision boarding and goal setting is fantastic way to really get your mind on the right track 

How do you slow it down and shush the nonsense?

Van Life Prep: The Donation Station

Let it go – create a donation box 

Perfect for this time of year, but also all year round – put a donation box in the house, where everyone can see it and place an item in at least once a week, then celebrate with a monthly trip to a local charity shop and donate to raise much needed funds for charity and offer much needed resources for those who might need them. 

We have a ‘one in, one out’ rule in our house – Kerry just ordered some new converse for example – but she must donate or recycle another pair of shoes to make room for them!  Good job her old trainers have a hole in eh?
