A new survey suggests that most Americans don't feel like the recession has ended, so they'll plan to continue cutting costs in their food budgets.

About 79 percent of the adults who responded to the survey say
it doesn't feel like the Great Recession is over.

Many Americans changed their shopping and eating habits to save money during the recession by cooking more often and using coupons.
About 79 percent of the respondents said they planned to continue
those measures.

Two-thirds of the people who responded say they've even enjoyed
becoming more of a bargain hunter.

Caravan conducted the phone survey of 1,018 adults in March for
Omaha-based ConAgra Foods. The margin of error is plus or minus 3
percentage points.
