A:"Today it'll be cloudy."
B: "So we should start going home still/even early"(intended meaning is we should start earlier than we did yesterday).

Is usage of both 'still' and 'even' correct? Please also tell me a better alternative, if there is one.

"So we should start going home even earlier than yesterday"
This assumes that you went home early yesterday. If you didn't go home early yesterday, then it doesn't work, and you just use "earlier than yesterday".

I personally would not use 'still' like this. "Earlier still" is possible. "We went home early yesterday, but today we should go home earlier still."
