As much as I love to get subscription boxes full of cool new products to try, minimalism always has a pull on me, too. Who doesn’t want to simplify their lives to save money and time? If you’re looking to shave a few minutes off your daily routine and cut through the myriad of options available today, here’s our short list of some of the best boxes to help make sure you start every day off on the right foot.

Best Subscriptions For Your Morning Routine

These 5 subscription services are perfect for keeping you stocked up on affordable basics and will help get you out the door in record time–plus, they look really good while doing it:

Hubble

Hubble Contact Lenses

Hubble is an affordable daily contact lens subscription that costs $1/day (and it comes in cute and colorful packaging to brighten your mornings). If you currently buy your contact lenses in bulk once or twice a year, you can save some space and cash with Hubble’s automatic monthly deliveries. And if you don’t wear contacts every single day, you can even reschedule your deliveries according to your needs.

You will need a prescription from your doctor to give these FDA-approved lenses a try. Hubble will reach out to them to verify your information before your order will ship.

Try Hubble free for 15 days (just pay shipping) when you sign up here!

Quip

Quip

Dentists recommended changing your toothbrush at least every three months, and there are plenty of brands that will auto-ship you a new brush 4 times a year. Quip takes things a few steps further with a system designed to help you brush more effectively and a beautiful brush design that you’ll love to showcase on your vanity using the included brush stand (which also can attach to your mirror if you’re short on counter space).

Quip educates you on how to improve your oral care routine, too. The brushes vibrate, but not in the same way as a traditional spinning electric toothbrush. Instead, they pause every 30 seconds to tell you when to change sides and stop after 2 minutes when you’re done. The system includes other helpful touches, like an indicator on the toothpaste to visually remind you that you only need to use a pea-sized amount, so you definitely won’t run out before your next refill arrives.

Starter Kit plans start at $25 for a plastic handle set with a $10 refill every 3 months. There are other packages designed for couples and families, too. Sign up here to get your first $10 refill for FREE when you subscribe!

Public Goods

Public Goods

Cutting down on visual clutter at home always helps me start every new day with a fresh outlook. (I’ve never gone as far as decanting my shampoo and body wash into glass dispensers… but I’ve definitely thought about it.)

Public Goods is a membership service that offers healthy essential personal care products at cost, all wrapped in their notoriously cool and minimal black and white packaging.

This company isn’t just about appearances. All of their products are cruelty-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, and most are also vegan-friendly and made in the USA. Their fragrances and formulas are unisex by design, making them perfect for guest bathrooms and Airbnb hosts. The brand introduces new products for your home regularly, so you can get everything from shampoo and conditioner to essential oils, soy candles, and even laundry detergent from Public Goods!

Public Goods memberships are $59/year and include access to buy products when you need them at cost. Try membership FREE for one month to give their products a try when you sign up here!

Daily Harvest

Daily Harvest

Smoothies are a great grab-and-go breakfast option when you need to get out the door. But let’s be real—it’s easy to get hung up prepping ingredients or waiting in line to buy one prepared for you. Daily Harvest offers the best of both worlds, with their pre-portioned frozen smoothie cup subscription. Just add your choice of milk, blend, and walk out the door. (Their cups can be used for serving too, and have a perforation for a straw in the lid!)

Pricing varies depending on the size of your order. Choose from $47.94 for 6 smoothies a week ($7.99 per smoothie), $89.88 for 12 smoothies a week ($7.49 per smoothie), or $167.76 for 24 smoothies a month ($6.99 per smoothie).

While these aren’t necessarily budget breakfasts, they’ll definitely give you some new smoothie ideas to try and cut your prep time down significantly. In a smoothie rut? Shake things up with their superfood lattes, soups, and other options.

New Daily Harvest subscribers can use coupon code THREEFREE to save 50% off your first box of 6 smoothies. Sign up here!

Ritual Vitamins

Ritual Vitamins

You’re almost ready to head out the door… but don’t forget your vitamins! Ritual vitamins focus on the 9 most essential nutrients for women’s health, skipping the nutrients in typical multivitamins that most American women don’t need. How’s that for efficiency?

Ritual products are also vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free, GMO-free, and manufactured in the USA. As for why they look so darn cool? It goes back to function. The vitamins use “beadlet-in-oil” technology that allows them to keep nutrients in their original forms and closer to what’s found in food. (We’ve found them to be ideal for people with sensitive stomachs or who often get nausea from vitamins. You can read our full review to learn more.)

Ritual is $30 for a 30-day supply—sign up here!

Lacey’s introduction to the world of subscription boxes was Julep Maven, but she quickly moved on once she discovered there were subscriptions for cooking, coffee, and art supplies. Current favorites include Crate Chef and Ecocentric Mom, and she’s looking forward to trying more.

  1. Beans of Motivation is a coffee subscription – totally helps simplify my morning. It’s better than Starbucks and I don’t have to wait in the stupidly-long line!

  2. I love Public Goods!!! I was a subscriber since back when they were Morgans’. I’ve tried literally everything they offer, and there is not a single product that I don’t like. I especially love their dental floss. It’s actual silk, does a fab job, and is environmentally conscious (most floss isn’t biodegradable). I also love that they offer just one item in each category (no choice paralysis. Lastly, their prices can’t be beat!

  3. I just got my husband and I quip and we love it. Had sonic toothbrushes forever but the replacements are expensive. This is just as good and they send out refills without having to do anything. Love it!!!

  4. Just a tip Hubble doesn’t carry any toric lenses so if you have an astigmatism they’ll cancel your order.

    • Shoot! Here I was thinking it’d be cool to get back into wearing contacts! But, I totally have astigmatism! 🙁
