I was out today shopping for a coffin for me to buried in when the time comes so my family wouldnt have to buy one, and I cant imagine why people waste so much money on coffins for people who are dead. Its not like they need to be comfortable and once its buried, nobody will ever see it again, so why waste $15,000 on a fancy coffin when a $500 pine one performs the same function. I bought the cheapest thing I could find as when Im dead I dont care if Im cold, uncomfortable, or eaten by bugs for that matter.
Its actually kind of funny that people think a nicer fancier coffin will make the dead person happier.
The same goes for anything that gets used once and thrown away, like plastic silverware or paper plates, why spend a fortune when you can get much cheaper for one time uses
