Tangled extension cords, USB cables and other wires are annoying. An easy trick to clean them up is to use toilet paper rolls as cable holders. Mark them so you can keep track of what cords belong to what.

Sometimes your vacuum cleaner can’t get into every nook and cranny. When that happens, extend your vacuum cleaner nozzle with a toilet paper roll. It works brilliantly — just look at the picture!

3. Cell phone holders

You don’t need to spend money on an expensive cell phone holder. All you need to do is make one yourself. Cut a rectangular hole in a toilet roll and stick four thumb tacks in the bottom for legs. Your new cell phone holder will be as beautiful as you make it!
