How to save on funeral costs?
One major way you can cut down on the cost of a funeral is to buy your own casket. Funeral homes are required to accept any casket you've purchased elsewhere, and online retailers can ship caskets directly to the funeral home if needed (shipping costs may apply depending on the retailer).
So, we recommend that you look around online for competitive prices. We also put together a guide of the best caskets we found online.
