Tips on How to Unsubscribe & Prioritize Emails

  • Mar 26, 2019

Listen, I know we live in the age of a million things to do and thousands of emails entering your inbox each day. The last thing I want to do is spam you with unnecessary information or share about things that only benefit me. That’s why I’m creating a newsletter that’s all about YOU.

Each month, I’ll include a list of family friendly things to do in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. The newsletter will contain stories or videos that’ll brighten your month from around the world. You’ll be the first to know promotions I’m running so you can finally archive your everyday memories.

Even if you don’t live in the Twin Cities area, there will be loads of useful content!

The first official newsletter goes out April 3, so be sure to sign up! What have you got to lose? If you don’t find it helpful, feel free to unsubscribe anytime!

Speaking of unsubscribing:


Organize: Go to unroll.me to find a list of all the emails you’re currently subscribed to. The site lets you easily unsubscribe as well as package all remaining subscriptions into a ONE tidy email per day. Do yourself a favor and Marie Kondo your inbox!


Prioritize: Choose a time to go through all emails you’re subscribed to – you know, the department store sales or the newsletters from your favorite blogs or authors. Set aside 30 minutes to dedicate to sifting through the information rather than wasting time going through them as they come in, which can be distracting. File the ones that serve you and delete the ones that do not. Which leads me to….


Save for Later: I have a folder in my inbox dedicated to emails I’d like to keep because they contain useful info I’d like to return to. Next time you’re in the waiting room of the dentist or in the school carpool wait line, head to that folder to do a deep dive into the information.
