Sure, you could buy a fancy long tool made specifically to remove the cobwebs from the corners of your rooms, but here are some other tools to use that’ll cost you nothing.

Cover a broomstick handle with a sock, and secure the sock opening to the handle with some duct or masking tape. You could also use a golf club, yardstick or hockey stick. Reach up, and swipe away the webs and dust. When finished, remove the sock (throw out the tape), shake it out, and chuck it in the washing machine. We sometimes spray the sock lightly with hair spray to pick up heavy ceiling crud, but usually the sock is enough.

You can also use duct tape (without the sock) wrapped sticky side out on the broom handle (or golf club, yard stick, hockey stick), but we usually just put a sock on it.
