What do I need to do in daily life that I don't realize I need to be doing?

I'm a recent college grad still getting used to this "real life" thing, living in an apartment for the first time.
What do I need to be careful about not forgetting? I'm looking for general life things that a person can forget to do or not know they're supposed to be doing--like changing the oil in the car, or filing taxes, or contributing to an IRA, or registering to vote, or checking abandoned property records, or doing breast self-exams, or getting a dentist appointment or booster shots for the cat...generally, things you don't realize you were supposed to have done until it's a considerable time later and you think, "shit, why didn't I do that?"
Book or (better yet) website recommendations would be ideal here. I hope this isn't too open-ended of a question.
FWIW, I don't actually have a car. I do have a cat, though, and a roommate.
