Control Station: Corral coffee table runaways with a basket organizer. This simple basket is stylish enough to sit out on the table and it keeps everything in one spot so when you want to change the channel, you'll always know where to find the remote. Look for a basket with compartments, like a utensil organizing basket.
Equip your cabinets with features that maximize storage. For deep cabinets, install pullout shelves or baskets that use all of the space; for tall shelf spaces, use stacking platforms. Corner cabinets -- classic space wasters -- should be fitted with lazy Susans or three-fourths circle-shape shelves.
