many people are concerned about the rising costs associated with funeral services. Many people are shocked to find that a significant portion of their estate will be funneled directly into their funeral. But unless you truly want to have a traditional funeral with all the bells and whistles, you can save money on your funeral by planning ahead.
Your family members may not be comfortable orchestrating a lower-cost funeral for you, but you can do it yourself if you pre-plan your funeral.
The video posted here describes several ways to save money on funerals. First, you need to compare prices between funeral homes. This is an essential step because funeral homes can charge a wide variety of prices for their services. You can save thousands of dollars by choosing a less expensive funeral home.
Additionally, you should know that you can say no to most services. You don’t need a full funeral service to have a celebration of your life after you pass on. You can choose cremation over burial if you’re comfortable with that, as well. And, if your family is comfortable with it, you can have them host your funeral at your home instead of in a funeral home. All of these tips will help you save money on your funeral.
