tracking profit or loss

How do you keep track of how you are doing? My method is simple I don't cash
my voucher unless it really get to large.

I use three different methods:

1) spread sheet
2) spread-sheet
3) spreadsheet

I've tried that method, but it didn't work for me. It got to the point where my voucher was worth -0-, and I had to buy another voucher.

I've had problems with vouchers becoming too faded over time.

Tvg has a Year to date button.

Excellent way of tracking wins, losses.

It's a lot easier to bet through an ADW and print out the information.

Yep if everytime you whip out your wallet to get purchase something you have a voucher staring back at you, you are swimming in your own mediocrity!

Because I do 99+% of my wagering thru an ADW, it is very easy for me to determine my profit/loss with regard to my wagering. For the remaining less than 1%, I maintain an excel spreadsheet and merge the results with the ADW reports.

Unfortunately I am reminded that a more-realistic determination of my profitability (or lack thereof) also requires the identification of other out-of-pocket expenses like the cost of the Racing Form, gas to travel to/from the wagering location, etc.
