Karissa and Rick describe themselves as frugal, but funeral director Lauren McDonald has another word for them: cheap.
In this exclusive clip from the season premiere of TLC's documentary series Extreme Cheapskates, married couple Karissa and Rick are planning for their future. Specifically, for when they die.
With the cost of a funeral going up each year, for things like coffins and cemetery plots, they figure that it will save them money if they make all the arrangements many years in advance.
However, their premature planning isn't what demonstrates their "cheapness." It's the fact that they want to be buried in the same coffin so they won't have to pay for two!
Check out the clip for the unusual antics that confound one poor funeral director.
Extreme Cheapskates' season premieres airs Wednesday, October 30 at 9/8c on TLC.
