affordable couverture chocolate?

so i'm trying to get more serious about my baking, and i know that the best chocolate for baking/pastry work is couverture chocolate...however, i can't find any in stores around here, and when i looked online (i tried amazon.com), al i found was a pound of vahlrona couverture for like $22. I know vahlrona is very high quality, but at a price like that, i really can't "play with it" at all...is there anywhere else i could look for more affordable couverture chocolate?
