Use fake Credit Cards received in the mail, for removing soap scum from bath and showers.
Put all your battery chargers for cell phones, cameras, Lap-top, etc. in individual clip seal bags and in one place preferably close to a power bar. Then you will always know where they are and they are ready to charge.
I also wrap an elastic band around my special pens, so that I can identify them quickly.
My dishwasher’s plastic cutlery holder broke, so I replaced it with stainless steel cutlery holders, which work very well.
