It’s sad to talk about, but everyone experiences a death in the family or to a close friend at some point in their life. More often than we think, this happens unexpectedly. Planning a funeral is difficult in itself, but even more so when no previous preparations were made. Read below as we discuss several funeral preparation tips and how you can save money throughout the process.

Natural burial is a great choice when trying to save money because it requires no embalming, no fancy caskets, and no expenses going toward the overpriced funeral home. The average person saves $8,000 when they choose a natural burial instead of a traditional burial service.
You can expect to spend $10,000 or more with a funeral home, so how much does a natural burial cost?

This Varies Based on the State, Natural Burial Ground, and Services You Select.
