The Shocking Cost of Funerals: How to Honor Your Loved One Without Breaking the Bank

The Shocking Cost of Funerals: How to Honor Your Loved One Without Breaking the Bank

It’s hard enough to cope with the loss of a friend or family member, much less the sticker shock that comes with laying them to rest. This week, Julien and Kiersten Saunders (@richandregular) give a line-by-line review of common funeral costs and several tips to help curb some of the expenses.

There are a plethora of funeral costs to be considered when planning, from basic services to a wake to flowers to the headstone.

Alongside discussing those costs, Julien and Kiersten discuss alternatives to burial, options for covering the cost and their own opinions on—and experiences with—funeral planning.
