You’d think death would be the one thing that’d free you from the bill collectors, right? Not quite. Even dying is an expensive proposition these days.
The average funeral is far from a cheap affair. Fortunately, many people plan for this by socking away money for their own burial services. This might seem like a morbid strategy, but it actually makes sense. Funerals can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Many people don’t want to place the burden for paying for these on the backs of others.
Just how costly can funerals get? Take a look at some of these numbers:
Burial clothes for men can run from $170 to $400, while these clothes for women can cost $95 to $350.
