Next year I might just go halves on a splitter from Tractor Supply with my buddy and use wood. Might keep some coal around too but I hate paying for anything, really. Plus I don't care about clean burning since I have outside chimney so no worrys.
If you start burning more wood, burn the stove hot and keep an eye on the chimney...exterior masonry chimneys can creosote up pretty badly. Even if you just burn coal at night that will help keep the creosote dry so it is easier to sweep out.
