I'm tired of tax bills!
If you aren't doing it already, consider having your dividends sent to a money market fund and use that "slush fund" to rebalance into the underweight areas (or, with a little more work, avoid the MM fund and its performance drag and have the dividends sent directly to buy more shares of the underweighted funds throughout the year--but this requires more frequent checking on things).
