Store DVD or Video Game cases in boxes that look good and keep things organized. Set up separate boxes for kids' movies, parents' movies, and video games. Label each box so the cases get put back in the right spots.
Dishcloths in a basket beside the sink.or under the sink. I like this idea better with wash clothes in a half bathroom that is used by visitors so your hands are clean after every hand wash instead of using the same hand towel in the bathroom.
