7 Subscriptions You Need To Get Immediately

12:18 PM

We're all busy. And we've all accidentally subscribed to stuff and forgotten to cancel, and ended up with all sorts of crap we don't need.

But some subscriptions are actually worth it! Here are some of my favorites.

Thanks for visiting! Just so you know, my blog contains affiliate links, which generate commission for me off your purchase. All reviews are 100% my own opinion. Any item featured may have been received free in exchange for promotion or review, but does not in any way affect my review.

1. Amazon Music Unlimited. 
Did you know that Amazon has a TON of ballet, jazz, classical, and kids-friendly music on Amazon Unlimited?

Endless amounts of music at your fingertips

All my favorite people are on the list (Lisa Harris, Steven Mitchell, Michael Roberts, etc) and so many more. There are also playlists if you're not feeling creative. The Amazon Music app works on Apple and Android (I have it installed on both) and they also have a desktop software that is a gazillion times better than i-tunes.

How do you know if the album is included on Amazon Unlimited? Look at the bottom, it'll say Stream or Buy for... if it says "Stream," it means you can listen to it with the AU subscription!

Monthly (different prices for yearly): Prime members - $7.99, Regular members - $9.99, Family (perfect for the studio- up to 6 users) $14.99

2. Canva for Business. 
I use Canva for everything; images, editing, my brochures and e-books and documents, my promotional materials, and even lately my slideshows.

I'm able to create my own style guide

I can change text, swap out photos, etc
It's easy, it's online, it's free, and the upgrade to Business is only $12 a month. Easiest and best $12 I spend every month.
Creating my own folders and uploading the pics I need

With the Canva for Business, you can upload a ton of photos, make folders, upload fonts, create style guides, and more.

I mean, you want your social networking graphics and flyers to look professional, right? I mean, I do... that's what I use for my documents!

They do also have a free option with fewer cool stuff, but it's a great place to start.

3. Food


I don't know about you, but I'm not a fan of making dinner after getting home at 9:00pm. I'm sweaty, I'm tired, I want to take a hot bath and drink wine and eat something, and then just throw away the garbage.

Well guess what. You totally can.

Here are a few super healthy subscription programs for food boxes and meals delivered to you (and most of them have super discounts when you're first signing up!

*pro-tip: most of these have a great deal for your first order/ sign up, give it a shot, and then cancel and go to the next one!*

  • Blue Apron (get $30 off your first order)
  • Green Chef (get 40% off your first order)
  • Graze (get your first box free)
  • Hello Fresh (get 50% off your first order)
  • Home chef (I got my first shipment delivered for about $9 with a coupon they gave me)
  • Instacart (groceries delivered where you want them,when you want them.) I'm a member and it is SO worth it. Pays for itself in a few uses, and if you use my link you'll get $10 off your first order!

4. Ballet Box
Ballet Box is a brand new subscription that is designed especially for ballet dancers! They are still in pre-sale, but if you sign up now, you might still get on the list (it's limited to 1k orders right now!)

They also have a great bun kit that you can either make a one-time purchase, or have it delivered regularly so you never run out of supplies!

5. Vertical Response
Vertical Response is an email program that helps you send out gorgeous emails to your clients. They have all the statistics you need to track your data, provide automated emails, and even help you build beautiful landing pages.

You can sign up for a free trial! See if you like it!

If you sign up through my link, you get 25% off the basic and pro plans! (when billed annually)

6. Bulldog Yoga.
Never heard of Bulldog Yoga? It's yoga from the comfort of home (no creepy guys looking at your butt) without the weird chanting and meditating. As a dance teacher, sometimes I don't want to do a barre. I don't want to do a warm-up. Sometimes I need new stretching routines! Sometimes Yoga is what I need.

Kick-ass yoga. Great Music. Streaming online classes. Try It!

Also works great for dance moms who want to stretch and condition with their kids!

Use coupon code beyondthebarre10 for 10% off (and can totally be combined with their 20% off first purchase as well!)

7. Google Drive Upgrade

Seriously if you don't use google drive, you're missing out. I use it for EVERYTHING. It's about $2 a month for 100 Gig of storage, or $100 a year for a Terabyte of storage. #worthit.

What subscriptions are you part of right now? Have you ever tried any of these?
