Unscrew your porch light and use one of these:
NOTE: Don't overload the circuit. Or the circuit breaker will trip.
I know in my case for my most recent house, I used a Circuit Breaker Finder. Have a helper plug it into an outlet, scan the panel til you find what you think it is. Flip the breaker, the power light at on the unit plugged in goes off to confirm, write it down, move on. That, with a light socket plug adatper got the majority of circuits out of the way. I was lucky that I had the finder at work, and can see how spending $40 can be a bit much for what most people see as a one time task.
For previous houses, I've had a few different methods. If I'm doing the entire house, I'd grab as many electric things as I could find and plug them in all over. Lamps, plug testers, radios, basically anything that would give me indication that the power was on or not. Then yes, sweep.
If I'm looking for a single breaker, I would just plug in a set of speakers, play some music and flip breakers until the music stops.

This is what I'm using. Works flawlessly.
If you want to keep the light as well, you can use this instead:

The second one is definitely important living in a basement. The heating system is normally down there and depending on what type it is, it could leak CO and kill you in your sleep.
Also, I hope you have enough power outlets and not overloading them!
Nice choice on using christmas lights for some lighting. Maybe get a lightbulb plug to make it easier to turn them on.
For the fires, you probably don't have a safe egress, which is why it's illegal to live in basements. Just make sure your roommates are nice enough to grab you incase of a fire (Set up a meeting point outside for fires so you all go to the same place and do a headcount). You might have to run through some flames to get out but it's no biggie.

Get a connected bulb for the bathroom, RF would easiest and cheapest I think. Then you can leave the light circuit 'on' all the time, but the bulb is only illuminated when the RF remote is used. Then you can power the GH at all times without a battery using just socket adapter.
This! So much this. Everything goes on sale Dec 26th for around half to 80% off...and it's only the second day of Christmas!
If you have any outside lights, there is a cheap adapter to turn those into outlets for additional lights as well. Very useful if you don't have a regular outside outlet.
If you have a door light or lamp post, you can take out the bulb, screw this in, and instant outlet.
My parents do this every year. Just don't go crazy and put too many lights going to this thing. But especially with the low power LED lights, you can string quite a bit up to this thing.
Light bulb socket adapter: One outlet version -- www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001PCVTFC, two outlet version -- http://www.amazon.com/Leviton-1403-Outlet-Socket-Adapter/dp/B001F71O70. Best not to try to make one of these yourself, can be dangerous if something gets wired backwards.
Fan speed regulator: Depends on the fan, ceiling fans are controlled different than box/stand fans. Usually it's a burnt resistor or such. Probably best to just replace the regulator assembly, most of the time they're not repairable anyway.
Broken cupboard door: Get a box of wooden matches; break the heads off 3-4 of them, however many will fit into the screw hole. Dip them into wood glue, then shove them into the hole as far as they will go. Once the glue dries, cut them off flush with the wood surface, then screw the hinge back into the newly filled-in wood. If you lost the screws, take one out of another hinge and your local hardware store should have something that matches up. Can also try getting a screw a couple sizes up instead of the matchstick trick. Screws are numbered for "thickness" and then measured for length. Quick chart of the American system is here -- http://s.hswstatic.com/gif/screws-1.jpg.
Toilet lid - usually these just sit on top of the tank? If you're talking about the seat, there are usually 2 screws under the hinge tabs, look for a cover you can flip up. Might have to use pliers underneath to hold the nut while tightening the screw above.
For the vast majority of things, if you don't want to post on /r/diy (that's what it's here for!) just search Google for "cabinet door hinge fell off", or "toilet seat loose," etc, there's plenty of information out there (even step by step YouTube videos!)

Depending on how much juice you needed and how strongly you felt about the grounded outlet...here
Maybe something like this if there is not a ground plug on the power cord. http://www.amazon.com/Leviton-1403-Outlet-Socket-Adapter/dp/B001F71O70/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1377900815&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=light+socket+adapter
I'd suggest doing something like this: http://www.hawk-hill.com/2014/09/hang-a-chandelier-in-a-room-without-wiring/
You can get DIY Chandelier kits from Home Depot or Lowe's. Just make it shorter than a typical chandelier. Then then put one of these in the light socket.
You have PERFECT timing, ComputerByte! I've been trying to puzzle out the solution to my holiday outdoor lighting woes and realized today that there is such a thing as an outdoor porch light outlet adapter - a little gizmo that screws into the light bulb socket and turns into outlets that things like Christmas string lights can be plugged into. :D
Of course, the one I found had to be an add-on item, so I stuck it on my wishlist and procrastinated further - Leviton 1403 Two Outlet Socket Adapter, Black.
Let's see, number 1-100 - I'll take 73.
I hope your mood improves! How's your little dog doing? EDIT wait no you're a cat person! Furry animal person? How's the small animal I know I've had a conversation with you about? :p
simplest way (if I am reading your post correctly) is buy a light->outlet adapter.
They make adapters you can screw into a lightbulb socket and makes a regular power outlet. You can then plug in a power strip to the outlet and get light, electric heat, charge your phone, etc.
they make adapters that you spin into a lightbuld socket, I lived in a self storage unit for two months one time that overlooked the city, all the homes in the area were multimillion dollar so I was pretty proud of my view for $35 a month, i cut a little slit behind the latch so I could close it from the inside so it looked paddle locked
Ohhhhh.... to you have a ceiling or wall light fixture out there? If so you might be able to use something like this and pull power off the light circuit.
Also available at any hardware store for around $1. But the storage units I'm familiar with had the lights in each section on a timer. You would need to twist the dial on the timer for the units in your section every 15 minutes. This prevents someone from running a chest freezer all the time, for example
Add something like this https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001F71O70/
I used a couple of these to daisy chain a few from the existing lights in the basement so that I could quickly set them up and keep using a single light switch.
However, I plan to hardwire a few for my garage just to try it out.
Buy a light socket that has 2 receptacles on each side : Here
Then 2 of these Socket to bulb adapters Here
that should do it.
Ok - so what I have is this guy:

You screw it into your light socket and then you have outlets - but it's just two pronged. Which is fine for Christmas lights but not fine for extension cords.
Definitely an exhaust fan is installed (but no clue if working or not). Looks like it has a plug, so I would get an extension cord and plug it into an outlet, see if it works (most likely it will). If it does, then get one of those light bulb adapters that have an electrical outlet, plug the fan into it and add a light bulb.
Something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Leviton-1403-Outlet-Socket-Adapter/dp/B001F71O70
Edit: please update us with the results.
I don't have anything concrete to back this up... but I'm pretty sure here in Canada there is no problems with putting lighting & electrical sockets on the same circuit.
How would that differ from a scenario where somebody simply plugs a floor/table lamp into an electrical socket?
Additional, things like this: http://www.amazon.ca/Leviton-1403-Outlet-Socket-Adapter/dp/B001F71O70 Would certainly not be kosher at all.
For that, you're going to want something like this - bonus points for plugging in Christmas lights that already blink!
...Something tells me we went off topic.

I get these here in the local electrical market. But the light bulb holders are a little higher, I was thinking if I could get a customized socket somewhere near my bed. Where I can plug in my charger.

I thought of posting an image of how it looks like from the outside.
Here is an image of it. I think I can even open it, take a pic and let you know, I thought I would first post the pic and ask for feedback. Is the regulator speed depended on the type of ceiling fan? The fan that I am using 1200 MM Sweep, 380 RPM, 80 Watts power consumption.
> Broken cupboard door:
Here is how it looks like. This is the broken door side. And this is how it looks on the cupboard. This image is from another cupboard where both the hinges are intact. So I think it is not really broken but the screws and nut seems to be come off? I went to a hardware store and showed them this pics, they bluntly said that only screws and nuts are not available, you need to purchase the complete set. I don't even know if I am using the technical terms like screws, nuts, hinges right. Forgive me if they are called something else.
> Toilet lid
The one that I have seems to be a little different. Here is what it looks like. The lid wont just fit easily on those plastic connectors given on the top of the hole.
Above all I really want to say a big thank you for taking out time and replying to me. It really helps and can go a long way if I get started with DIY stuffs.

About $4 if you want to charge slowly
Just a thought. You can change the light bulb adapter above to one that has a plug + light. Then use a trickle charger to keep your battery charged. Since you have a nice space in the [email protected] trailer, you could use it as a cheap office (if they don't mind).
You could use something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Leviton-1403-Outlet-Socket-Adapter/dp/B001F71O70/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1407430422&amp;sr=8-2&amp;keywords=light+socket+plug+adapter
That way you can run an extension cord into your shed for light without sacrificing the porch light. It would obviously only work if the porch light is switched on, but it's better than not having a porch light at all. I wouldn't run more than a few lamps off that power source though.
Edit: how many more times do you think I could say porch light?
Light socket to plug adapter, similar to this one.
A lot of people use them for Christmas lights so they can be turned on and off with their porch light switch.
Does the garage have a light? Ive used an extension cord plus one of these in a similar situation before.
