Do you have any sort of routine that you follow at the beginning of each month?
For me there are several pieces of my monthly reset.
1. Balance financial accounts and pay all bills that know about for the month. Be sure to include automatic withdrawal payments in account balancing. Transfer funds if large irregular expenses require it.
2. Check what birthdays, anniversaries or other milestones need a card or gift during the month.
3. Decide on a few goals for myself.
4. Determine the periodic or occasional tasks that have to be done for home or health.
5. Make sure all routine tasks are on the calendar or to do list.
