    3. Stick a removable-adhesive shelf wherever you need a little extra catchall, like by your chargers, in your bathroom, or next to the sofa.

    4. Never lose your TV remote again — and keep it from sliding around while you're driving — with Command's picture hanging strips.

    You could also use regular hook-and-loop tape, but these won't leave residue on or damage your walls. From Laura's Crafty Life.
