I often wonder how long it will be before we find that burial plots will cost more than a house. It is something that many do not like to think about, but careful planning can prevent your loved ones from suffering with the financial burden for years after the funeral.
For me, I prefer cremation. It is cheap and quick. An alternative that should be looked at for people on a budget.
There are cooperatives or societies, such as the one in Quebec, Canada, that gives you the advantage of saving money on the costs of a funeral.
Therefore, young or old, you should think about becoming a member. The inexpensive one-time membership fee is for one lifetime membership.
For those in other countries, there may be be a funeral cooperative or society in your area. Therefore, you should do a search online to see where they are.
