Everything costs more these days, from property to food and transportation. Even dying isn't cheap anymore with some private hospitals charging up to $8,000 per day just for some specialist treatment in a private room. Imagine what the funeral costs can come up to! Specialist funeral companies such as Nirvana handle most things for you but present you with a 5-figure bill after that. Is it no wonder then that the aged have actually started preparing for their own funerals through saving a little every month?!
