Buying Time

So often, we put off thinking about buying a cemetery plot because we don’t want to think about the inevitable end of our lives.  Whether it is because we don’t like the thought of not being with our family or friends any longer or because the final plans of buying cemetery plots are difficult to get started, it is a common human experience to procrastinate burial plans

Did you know?…The average cost of a traditional funeral is $6000!

These Seven Simple Rules are Suggestions from the Federal Trade Commission for Planning a Funeral:

1. Shop around in advance. Compare prices from at least two funeral homes. Remember that you can supply your own casket or urn.
2. Ask for a price list. The law requires funeral homes to give you written price lists for products and services.
3. Resist pressure to buy goods and services you don’t really want or need.
4. Avoid emotional overspending. It’s not necessary to have the fanciest casket or the most elaborate funeral to properly honor a loved one.
5. Recognize your rights. Laws regarding funerals and burials vary from state to state. It’s a smart move to know which goods or services the law requires you to purchase and which are optional.
6. Apply the same smart shopping techniques you use for other major purchases. You can cut costs by limiting the viewing to one day or one hour before the funeral, and by dressing your loved one in a favorite outfit instead of costly burial clothing.
7. Plan ahead. It allows you to comparison shop without time constraints, creates an opportunity for family discussion, and lifts some of the burden from your family.

Did you know?…If you don’t preplan for your funeral, then the average cost rises to $11,000?
