7 Ways to Save on Funeral Costs

When you read the title 7 ways to save on funeral costs, you probably thought about how insensitive that would be. After all, how do you respect and grieve a loved one by trying to find ways to save money on their funeral?

But let’s face it, death arrangements can get very pricey. Just research the average cost of a funeral. (Between $7,000 and $10,000 that is, according to FuneralTips.)There’s caskets, embalming, funeral services, viewings, graveside services, headstones and hearses to think about. Not to mention an officiant, flowers and many other expenses. So if the deceased happened to have a bad insurance plan, or if no one liked him much and a cheap funeral is in order, this list could prove useful.

The 7 ways to save on funeral costs will serve as a comforting relief. So muffle your sobs, put down the tissues and read on.
