Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay here! :-)
Does Southwest Air serve an airport convenient to you? They often have the lowest fares, and they don't charge for baggage. Also, if the price of the air fare comes down after you book, you can re-book for the lower rate with no penalty, and you will receive a credit for future flights equal to the total fare difference. Southwest doesn't list their flights with consolidators like Kayak, so you have to check directly with their website.
Also, there is an Air Travel Forum here on TA where you might find more tips. (Click on "All" where you see "Browse forums" near the top of the page.)
