I want to switch off my room lights without getting out of bed.

I am embarrassingly lazy, and wish to switch off my ceiling lights without getting out of bed. What kind of contraption can I rig, to make this happen?

The wiring runs through the walls. So, alas, it is not as simple as plugging my light into a remote-controlled wall plug. I've tried getting several types of floor lights before, but they simply weren't bright enough, and failed to light up the whole room.
Is there some kind of remote-controlled contraption that can physically flick my light switch up and down?
Can this be done cheaply? Or is there some other method that I haven't thought of?
Ideally, I would wire a second switch right next to my bed, just like my dorm room back in the day. But I'm pretty sure my landlord would say no, and I would probably electrocute myself in the process.
Also, I am unwilling to spend $200 on Philips Hue wifi lightbulbs.
Please forgive me for being cheap and lazy! :( Believe me, I know it.
