Post-It Dust Catcher

Simple Solution:

Next time you drill a hole in a wall, use a sticky Post-It Note to catch the dust and debris. Stick the note to the wall directly below the hole location. Then, fold up and crease the bottom half of the note, forming a V-shaped trough. Now when you drill into the wall, the dust will fall into the upturned note.
