Bookmark all the libraries in the browser and use them.
I tell you, you do not need any paid plan if you are a freelance, student, or small startup.
Suppose you are interested in saving time and improving the development process speed. Then you buy a paid plan for any of them, which I mention in the list of libraries. For paid plan, my recommendation is tailwind Ui, Tailwind UI kit, and Flowbite.
