The basic rules are that preterit is for what happened at a specific time in the past, whereas imperfect is for something that doesn't have a specific time. Using these rules, we end up with:

cada día: imperfect

el domingo: preterite

el otro dia: preterite

generalment: imperfect

de repente: does imply one or the other

anteayer: preterite
