I have a bicolor dracaena, a dracaena massangeana, cactuses and an aloe plant, is there any good fertilizers that accomodate all of them to save me some money and time?

Your cacti and aloe can get by without regular feeding but if you want to feed, use a water soluable fertilizer such as Miracle Gro or Peter's. Dilute to half strength and use the mixture instead of a regular watering once every 4 weeks during the growing season. This will provide a nearly constant source of minerals and nutrients without the salt build up that might harm your plants. Best wishes with your plants.
