Plus you could start sleeping in there now, so you get used to it when the time comes to live in there.

nah, they call that model a "toe pincher" and I'd want comfortable shoes for eternity.

Truthfully, in this economy that's not a bad idea. Coffin's are REDICULIOUSLY expensive. The whole process is really... I hope that when I die my wife doesn't blow a huge chunk of change on my new bed. Something like this would work just fine for me.

Three companies now control the funeral home business but retain the local name to appear community friendly. Why pay for a shiny box most areas insist be then inside a concrete box & buried?

Deer die and nature claims the remains. Put me in a hole and set an acorn on top. (ILLEGAL in the US).

Even cremation is a rip off. They put my mom's body in a cardboard box for cremation and charged $100 for the box in 1980.

Do you have to buy a coffin from an undertaker?

It is difficult to find coffin suppliers who will sell direct to the public. If they did, the undertakers would boycott them and try to close them down. This is one commodity you cannot yet get more cheaply on the internet. However, it is clear that a great many people want to buy this one last gift for someone who has died themselves, not through a third-party. So all praise to the few brave enough to sell to you. We recommend, especially:

Greenfield Creations. Extremely helpful and very good value.
The Coffin Company. The UK?s first direct-to-the-public online coffin shop. An offshoot of Go As You Please, a Newcastle undertaker famous for providing wonderful support and excellent value for money.
Some undertakers will not accept a coffin supplied by you (they will insist that you order it through them). All will order the coffin you want if you see something you like on the internet. Some will charge much more for it than others. Ring around, get some other quotes, and negotiate the lowest price with your undertaker.

You can often buy a coffin on eBay. Search in Home and Garden.

Charlie Hetrick says he's working to "put the fun back in funerals." But that might give you the wrong idea. He's not dressing in a clown suit and juggling at the funeral home door or suggesting champagne toasts in the chapel.
Hetrick, known to friends as "Outhouse Charlie," is making coffins -- in kit form for do-it-yourselfers or custom coffins designed to put you away with a smile on your face.
Want to spend eternity face to face with (depending on your age and stage) Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jessica Simpson or Jane Fonda? A poster of your idol could be attached inside the lid. A favorite poem or artwork can be applied with a laser. A coffin interior may be wallpapered or painted a favorite color. The possibilities are almost unlimited.
Hetrick even has a model that comes with a new hammer and a packet of nails so friends can give the dearly departed an airtight sendoff. Hetrick suggests lid nailing can be part of the funeral ceremony.
Some of his clients order coffins early and put them to good use. One is currently serving as a glass-topped coffee table with
a model railroad running around inside. Another is outfitted as a bookcase. A full standing elk was carved on the lid for another client.
What started as a joke has become a business.
Hetrick and his wife, Willow, are historical re-enactors. That means they occasionally drop into the 19th century, head into the woods to live in tepees or tents, wear buckskins, shoot with antique muzzle loaders and participate in tomahawk-throwing contests.
"I'm a world-famous mountain man and a legend in my own mind," Hetrick says with a grin.

Contemporary German architect Gregor Darius Haiduk is the latest in a long line of countrymen (the Brother?s Grim come to mind) to have addressed topics deemed too morbid for some creative types: in this case, the creation of a vessel to be set in your final resting place.

I think this last one is the most practical. You get a nice cedar chest while alive and a new use when you croak.
