The average cost of a Funeral is now 8,000 to 10,000 USD. This according to my last blog post and frugalpigs.com
Step 1: Choose Cremation and have the service somewhere other than the funeral home.
Step 2: Obtain your casket from an alternative source. Suggestion Order it on the internet.
Step 3: Refuse Embalming- in most cases but not all you may do this
Step 4: Do Everything at the cemetery as was the case with Walt Disney
Step 5: Do as much as possible at church, not the funeral home.
Step 6: Do a home funeral
Step 7: Have a green burial.
A home funeral and a green burial may be not doable in certain parts of the USA today. They will become available to all in the near future.
