How To Save On The Cost Of A Funeral Today

How To Save On The Cost Of A Funeral Today

How do you save on the cost of a funeral today? Is there any reprieve for the financially oppressed?

The average funeral costs between $7,000 and $9,000.

This includes viewing and burial, basic service fees, transporting remains to a funeral home, a casket, embalming and other preparation.

The average cost of a funeral with cremation is $6,000 to $7,000. These costs do not include a cemetery, monument, marker or other things like flowers.

Funeral costs have been rising steadily since the 1980’s.

Today, it’s not uncommon for the average funeral to cost up to $9,000 or more depending on whether the body is buried or cremated.

Caskets and urns can cost thousands of dollars alone depending on the style and material used.

What can be done to save on funeral costs?

First of all, it’s important to plan ahead.

If you do not, you may end up agreeing with whatever your funeral director says.

This most likely may end up being a very hefty bill because the funeral director will not tell you about bargains like these:

1.Do you know that you can buy a casket online and save over $1,000.00?

The average cost of a casket is over $2k plus and the higher end caskets caskets can cost $10K and more.

You are not obligated to buy the ones offered for sale at the funeral home.

Caskets at Costco and Walmart start at around $950.00

2.Burial is free for veterans at a VA National Cemetery.

This is as a consequence of a law first established by Honest Abe which stipulates that all honorably discharged veterans, their spouses and dependent children can be buried at a Veterans Affairs National Cemetery at no cost.

To reach the regional Veterans Affairs office in your area, you can call 800-827-1000.

3.Going green can save you a lot of money.

You can pay $4,000 to have your loved one laid to rest at sea in an environmentally safe External Reef.

It does not have to be that extreme.

If you want to bury your loved one in a cemetery in a way that is kind to the environment and cost effective to you at the same time, look into having a natural burial.

Green burials cut out the cost of embalming and vaults.

Furthermore, you can forego an expensive casket and choose a biodegradable one or a simple burial shroud.These types of burials are available in 41 states for as little as $2,000.00.

Check to see if this service is available in your state.

4. A Cremation can trim off around $1,000.

The average traditional funeral can cost over $7,000 but a cremation can knock off more than $1,000. It can cost even less if it is your preference of not having a service.

You don’t have to put out a lot of money for the urn, especially if you are planning to scatter the ashes. You can get a simple urn for around $20 to $25.

5.Want to eliminate funeral costs completely?

Then you will have to completely circumvent the traditional method.

Most people give no thought to the benevolent option: that of donating your body to medical research.

On most occasions, the medical school or private organization you work with will pay all costs including transportation and cremation.

To learn more about this option, contact your local medical board.

The Anatomical Board of the state of Florida has a comprehensive list of medical schools by state on its website  at

You can also contact private organizations like:

Why most FAIL? (do this instead)

Why most FAIL? (do this instead)

Why most fail? It’s because people  are afraid of making a mistake which must happen.It’s part of the process.

Thomas Edison failed a thousand times before he succeeded.

Prerequisites and requirements inside…

Do you know the STATS?

92%+ folks that hop online and want to change their life, never will.

They’ll buy the courses.
They’ll dream of freedom.
And they’ll lather. rinse. repeat.

Usually they won’t even TRY to get a result they want.


Here’s a quote to remember:

“Life doesn’t transform by consuming insights, but by TESTING them.”


Most people don’t start because they are afraid they’ll make one eeny teeny mistake.

Yet that is a PART of the process!
It MUST happen.

Just like a plane traveling from one spot to another must course correct MANY times.

Better to take hold of the quote above?

The failure has nothing to do with you or your worth.

You’re amazing.

Simply view it as an “experiment” towards getting you what you want.

Willing to do that?

Again, it’s a prerequisite.

The result of viewing this biz like you are a scientist in the lab, testing what works and learning from what doesn’t?

It can result in a life most only dream of.

I don’t say that lightly:-)
