Regardless of how organised you are with to-do lists and other reminders, it's easy to forget your monthly tasks. To help remedy this, productivity blog Stepcase Lifehack suggests bunching all your monthly tasks together into one day so you remember to get them all done.

The idea is that it's a lot easier to manage monthly tasks when you coordinate them together on one day. Many of these are small tasks. They're things like changing the filter on the air conditioner, changing contacts or giving a pet medication. Still, just because they're easy doesn't mean you remember to do them. You can pick any day of the month that works for you, but try to coordinate them together if you can. If you can't, stick to your current schedule for critical tasks and inch your other tasks closer over the months.
It's not a bad system for organising those hard-to-remember monthly tasks. It seems like it would make the most sense to structure them around any monthly bill dates you have and then dedicating an additional hour or two to getting the tasks done. How do you typically remember your monthly tasks?
