Making your house work for you - Bedside table pt 2

I believe in making your space WORK for you (as I've said before) and here is part 2 for getting your bedside area to work harder, keep itself neater, and just generally be more pleasant to be around.

Last time I showed you the trick used to keep the husband's bedside table in order (books, bottles, pens, papers... everything!) and this time it's my side. I have TWO tricks up my sleeve for ya.

I don't keep many books here (I feel guilty when I read anything for fun!) but I do need a few key things.
1. Phone charger
2. Meds, moisturiser, and lipbalm.

The first solution is more obvious:

 A bowl for small, practical items. I have pills and things in here which I need to be able to see, but they are messy when loose, so a bowl of course is an easy, practical solution to keep them in one place.

But the REAL life saver in this area............???

Making your house work for you - practical solution for keeping your phone charger in one place, out of sight

This SIMPLE fix for a phone charger chord.
I got SOOO tired of groping around on the floor for this chord every night when charging my phone, stepping on it during the day, and then trying to kick the ugly chords out of sight  (which meant kicking it under the bed... making it harder to get at night). Chords are annoying. I don't need to tell you that.
But you know what's not annoying?
Using a humble peg to keep it right here, all the time.
