    Let me check my list: toilet paper, cereal, laundry soap, a new DVD and the off-white casket in the corner. This news somehow is striking me as a bit odd but it could just be me. Actually, it is online sales so it not like you have to get a casket into your basket at checkout. What could be next?

    I have heard talk of that for a while, since about 2003 or 2004 when I used to work for a memorial park.

    I googled and am stunned and speechless.

    I hope this is one thing that I will not have to use DH's discount on...

    LOL LOL [​IMG] Its really real?
    Who knows, maybe its not such a bad idea... the price of caskets is outrageous! Maybe affordable ones at wal-mart will actually be really beneficial to those without life insurance. Depends on how much you actually save though... unless its a really decent amount, I think wal-mart trying to sell caskets is just plain weird.

    Actually Sam's Club hasn't sold caskets before, I think they are trying to compete with Costco who sells them via their website only.

    O.K. how many people think I should be worried????? I find a thread by my husband and find out he's shopping for caskets? It's just the two of us here so who's it for? I think I'll cancel my life insurance policy now - that way there's no monetary incentive. But, just in case, if I suddenly dissappear from BYC I want someone to notify the authorities.....


    Edited to add: And by the way, I don't want a casket. Just in case something happens to me, donate all organs and anything that can be used to help others and cremate the rest and scatter the ashes somewhere pretty - a forest or lake will do just fine.
