With all the devices you need to have on hand when you’re in bed—your cell phone, your tablet, your laptop—there’s a premium on plug-in space. Turn your bedside tables into tangle-proof, clutter-free charging stations by stashing a power strip inside the drawer and plugging it into the wall through the back of the drawer.
This way, all your devices have access to a charger, and you can shut away the chord clutter for a bedside table that looks as zen as your bedroom makes you feel.
Tired of tossing half used candles? Or burning your fingers attempting to light them? Chances are, you have what you need to light those tricky glass encased or pillar candles in your pantry, right now: an uncooked spaghetti noodle.

Pro Tip: One you’ve successfully lit your candle, make sure to put the noodle under the faucet to snuff the flame and make sure it doesn’t smolder.

Install a tension rod outside of your shower curtain, and voila—an extra long towel rack.
