ST. LOUIS -- Today in my continued journey to save you time and money, we talk travel!

An airline's website never paints the full picture when it comes to price. In fact, if you're searching for flights on a tight budget, the last place I ever recommend starting your search is with an airline.

One of my favorite free resources called "Sky Picker" takes what we know about airline bookings and flips it with a more frugal spin. If you want to get away but don't care where you're going (ideal for a spontaneous trip or adventure), Sky Picker also comes to the rescue.

It's hard to believe a site so simple is such a great way to save but without the bells and whistles, bargains come front and center. Check out the video above for tips on how to save on your next flight. I recently had a chance to test this website for the travel series I host for USA Today Travel called "Work Your Perks" and I'm now booked on several flights.

Use this link to experience Sky Picker.
