Thks Shiny Things & patryn33 for your valuable recommendations & advices. I realised that Mulberry is charging by pieces. Wouldnít it be more expensive? Is it a norm that all wash & fold services in SF are chargeable by pieces?
No, it's not; the norm is to charge by the pound.

I work near there; I'll wander by at lunch today and check their pricing.

Is there something like GrabHitch in SF ?
I intend to go Livermore FO from Union Square.
The shuttle operated by Gray Line is no longer running

thanks in advance!
Grab BART to Dublin/Pleasanton station, then use Lyft to get the rest of the way.

Oh, thatís great! Please let me know after checking out. Thks so much!
I have another issue. We intend to fly to Orlando from San Fran. Heard that we can get domestic flight tickets when reaching upon San Fran & itís usually cheaper buying nearer to departure dates. Is it true? As our flight will reach SFO in the afternoon, we are left with late afternoon to night flights. Is it safe to buy upon reaching? The chances of full flight is low? Hope you guys can advise. Thks!

Domestic flights usually cheaper around 2 weeks to flight date. You can check skiplagged.com, they have flight ticket price according to time.

Doesnít really matter if you buy before hand, as long as the date you pick is in the right range. But usually domestic flight price donít fluctuate so much. Monday to Thursday flights are usually cheaper.

I would buy b4 hand, a week b4 my flight was $x, 6 day b4 my flight prices doubled. If I travel with a family of 4, I wouldnít want to risk and not be able to sit on the plane together.

Oh, didnít know it can fluctuate so much...so preferably to buy at least 2weeks before? Luckily have u guys here if not I would have waited till we reach before buying cos somebody has actually told me tt the nearer the dates, the prices will be cheaper but it seems otherwise. Thks guys for your valuable advices. Btw is Skiplagged the only platform that can source for cheap domestic flights? Welcome anymore suggestions. Thks so much!

Skiplagged Is good for cheap tickets but with transfer generally or flight is really a->b->c but u drop if at B. With check bags can be an issue as your bags go to C! Read this

This is a recent incident on skiplagged

This is extremely wrong. The cheapest time to buy US domestic flights is usually about 6-12 weeks out; and airlines are very good at load management, so the flights all tend to be pretty close to full, especially on a route like MCO-SFO which is going to be popular with families. Use Google Flights to find your flights.

I'll be planning a trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles.

Wondering which highway I should take:
- Highway 1 (most scenic, longest route)
- Highway 101 (in the middle)
- IS-5 (no scenery, shortest)

I have allocated around 1 day, at most 2 days for the drive down.

If I were to take highway 1, do you think it would be possible to make it in one day?
Or if we took 2 days, do you guys have any suggestions on where to stay/ eat along the way?

Thanks so much!

Take highway 1. Stay overnight in Big Sur (if youíre fancy) or Pismo Beach (if youíre keeping it economical). Trust me on this.
