Technology both saves us time and creates more time wasters, so we often find ourselves struggling to do the simplest of tasks. Sure, we can check our email on our smartphone from anywhere, but how on earth are we going to have time to make it to the store this week? We’re already juggling work, home, and in many cities, an ever-worsening daily commute.
Fortunately, the quality of convenience has improved over recent years. There are a variety of ways to simplify the process of self-care and entertainment, and making time to enjoy our day is no longer a luxury granted only to teenagers who haven’t entered the workforce yet.
With these great subscription services, you and your family can get more out of your day, with little effort and minimal cost.
It may seem silly, but after a long day at work, the simple question “what’s for dinner?” suddenly feels like too big a burden to bear. With our sponsor HelloFresh, you can remove the guesswork.
Each time you receive a meal, you’ll get pre-measured ingredients along with step-by-step instructions on how to make a quick, delicious and healthy meal. With a huge variety, you and your family will never get bored, and you can resist reaching for that frozen lasagna.

Dollar Shave Club was initially marketed toward men looking to simplify their shaving. Not long after this popular subscription box gained traction, women began raving about it, too.

Speaking of oral care, our sponsor quip offers a subscription service that offers so much more than a typical toothbrush.
quip's slim, quiet electric toothbrush was designed with consumers and dentists in mind. The wireless brush suctions to bathroom surfaces for easy storage and travel, and the subscription service provides you with brush head refills every three months. It’s easier than ever to take care of your smile.

Spotify is a free monthly subscription service that allows you access to more music than you could ever listen to. The paid subscription offers you the ability to choose to play whatever song you want, whenever you want, and the family plan shares that ability with your household.
Imagine being able to play nearly any song, anytime. That’s what Spotify brings to the table.
When it comes to beauty and grooming, Birchbox was among the first to deliver monthly subscription boxes. With personally tailored skin, hair and style-related items each month, it’s definitely something to look forward to.
Women aren’t the only ones who can benefit from this subscription box, either. With BirchboxMan, men can simplify their grooming needs every month, too!
"Your partner in personal style" sends you a box of clothes every month (or set your own frequency). Choices are personalized to you based on a quiz, which you can update at any time. Let them know if you want more dress clothes and less casual options, or vice versa. The monthly styling fee of $20 is applied to your purchases, and they include an easy-to-use prepaid envelope to send back whatever you decide not to keep.
