Funeral Planning Tips
Many funeral providers offer various “packages” of goods and services for different kinds of funerals.
As a Marketer, I love it. But as someone who likes to stick to a budget, its nice to have options.
Please remember this . .
When you arrange for a funeral, you have the right to buy goods and services separately.
That is, you do not have to accept a package that may include items you do not want. Here are some tips to help you shop for funeral services:
- Shop around in advance. Compare prices from at least two funeral homes. I know it seems like tedious work but in all things, its really important to get insight to multiple services or products.
- Know that you can supply your own casket or urn. Head on over to Home Goods. Boom. Done.
- Ask for a price list. As a matter of fact, the law requires the funeral home to give you written price list for products and services. Don’t worry – they will most likely do this without you asking.
- Avoid emotional overspending. It’s not necessary to have the fanciest casket or the most elaborate funeral to properly honor a loved one.
- Apply the same smart shopping strategies that you would use for other major purchases. You can cut costs by limiting the viewing to one day or just one hour before the funeral, and by dressing your loved one in a favorite outfit instead of costly burial clothing.
Ideally, you want to decide on what happens to you after you pass away long before it happens.
Pre-arranging as much as possible will give you peace of mind and any surviving family members peace of mind.(yep, think about your children.)
