Instead of discarding your toilet roll middles next time you finish a roll, why not put them to good use? Easily spruced up with a lick of paint, toilet rolls make thrifty cable separators, saving you the hassle of untangling your camera charger from your HDMI cable next time you go on holiday. Also, if you fancy being extra organised, you can even write what cable you’re cocooning on the roll.

4. Muffin tray drawer tidies
