How to Create a Monthly Subscriptions Tracker in Notion
We’ve all been there. You sign up for a free trial for a new service, totally forget about it, only to find $10 missing from your bank account the following month. Four months later, it’s still coming out You need to create a monthly subscriptions tracker, and Notion is the best software for it. Here’s how.
Fortunately, Julian Lehr — a fellow Notioner — has done the hard work for you, creating the best monthly subscriptions tracker in the business. All you need to do is set aside some time to input all of your subscriptions and the relevant information (price, billing frequency) and you’ll be on your way.
You can even set reminders so you get some form of heads-up that an alert a payment is leaving your account. There are restrictions when it comes to cadence, though: You can choose to be notified on the day of the event, the day before the event, two days before the event, or a week before the event.
The main benefit of building your subscriptions tracker in Notion is that it can be accessed from just about anywhere. That’s because Notion syncs across devices, including Android, iOS (and iPadOS), Mac, and Windows. Your entire Workspace can also be accessed via a browser like Google Chrome.
Getting started is simple. Just follow this link to view Lehr’s monthly subscriptions tracker template on Notion, then click the little ‘Duplicate’ button in the upper-right corner. After a couple of seconds the tracker will appear in your Workspace where you can start adding all your memberships.
