Hawaiian Snacks Giveaway Ends 2/3

The blogger, Susan Disney Family teamed up with Hawaiian Snacks to do an awesomeingly yummy giveaway.

What are Hawaiian Snacks?

"The creator of Hawaiian Kettle Chips, Tim, Tim's has been creating famous chips in the shadow of the Cascade Mountain range since 1986 using an old family recipe. By starting with premium potatoes direct from family owned farms and only the finest blends of real seasonings, we think you'll agree that you have discovered what you have been looking for from your first satisfying crunch. Just like the mountains that surround us, we have risen to the challenge of creating great tasting snacks. We have proven that a chip crunches louder, tastes superior and satisfies better when it is prepared by people who take pride in a well-made snack. Our products are still created one batch at a time. And as always - NO TRANS FATS! Many people have told us that Tim's creates the best snacks anywhere. We believe once you've tried them, you'll agree."

By making this blog post, I am trying to win “the $500 Financial Blogger competition, sponsored by Life Insurance Finder – the easiest place to compare life insurance”. You should try and win also!

My Financial Confessions List of 2011 is as follows:
1) My biggest financial sin of 2011 is not refinancing my mortgage when I was able to in early 2011. The rates were so low. I was hoping they would get lower. I also was lazy. I admit it. There was just so much paperwork involved!
I then got ill, lost my job and was unable to refinance without a job. Now, I am stuck with my old finance rate which is quite high compared to rates now.
2) As a result of #1, I needed to take out money from my 401K to pay my mortgage in 2011 (I swore I would never do this)! Add insult to injury but I did not prepay the penalty taxes when I removed the monies from my 401K.
Based on my two huge mistakes, I am going to be hit with a HUGE tax bill this year along with having my huge mortgage rate that could have been easily reduced in the beginning of the year (negating the need to touch my 401K)!
