    27 Products That'll Help Keep Your Home Organized And Your Roommates Happy

    Did you run the dishwasher last night??

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A magnetic dishwasher sign so nobody will have an excuse for putting dishes in the sink if the dishwasher is dirty.

    2. Or a large dish rack if you don't have a dishwasher *and* don't want to spend time hand-drying, but also keep everything looking somewhat neat and orderly.

    3. A shower storage caddy to help keep all your bathroom items separate from everyone else's.

    4. Or a shower curtain with pockets – it may look a little strange, but if you don't have any storage space in your bathroom or the shower itself, this curtain will keep things organized so everyone knows where their own products are.

    5. A pull-out cabinet organizer to get your stacks of pots and pans in order so you don't have to work as hard to get that one pan you need that alway seems to be in the middle of the pile.

    6. Some color-coordinating soap dishes so you never accidentally use your roommate's soap ever again (because you know you'll never hear the end of that).

    7. An end table with a storage basket to artfully store things in your common area that you don't want hanging out on the couch or coffee table.

    8. A wall hook because a coat closet is a luxury we don't all have in life, so, until then, this will keep everyone's coats and scarves in a safe place rather than piled up on a chair.

    9. A set of airtight containers that will keep all your food organized and visible — and also give you an opportunity to ask your roommate if you can throw out the cereal that expired in 2017.

    10. A mail holder and cork board so you'll always know where the bill that came in the mail is. Plus, you can leave notes telling your roommates where you're going to be (if you don't feel like texting them).

    11. An over-the-cabinet bag holder so you all have a place to put the mountain of plastic bags you've accumulated somehow.

    12. A storage container you can label with the date or your name so nobody gets confused about whose leftovers are whose in the fridge.

    13. A double laundry hamper for the bathroom to keep your things separate — for good.

    14. A wine rack to help free up some precious counter space and make the place seem a little bit fancier than it actually is.

    15. A multi-use stool to stuff all your throw blankets in when you're not using them. Plus, it also doubles as a seat when you have people over!

    16. A turntable organizer you'll have a-round for a long time because you won't have to fight about which products you should keep at the front of the cabinet all the time.

    17. A riser to make more space in your medicine cabinet because it probably wasn't designed to have that many people keeping all their things in it.

    18. A lifting coffee table that'll hide all those random magazines and books so well, you might even forget where you put them.

    19. A toilet paper stand with a spot to hold extra rolls so you aren't totally out of luck when one of your roommates finishes a roll and doesn't replace it.

    20. A three-compartment plastic lid organizer to prevent an avalanche of plastic containers every time you open your cabinets (and to prevent you from screaming and waking up your roommates).

    21. A shoe rack and bench so you're not tripping over shoes as soon as you walk through the door.

    22. And a shoe drying mat for the winter months, because there's nothing much worse than someone tracking snow and dirt through your place and inevitably stepping in a wet puddle while wearing socks.

    23. An over-the-cabinet caddy that'll help any argument about counter space in the bathroom ~blow~ over.

    24. A non-slip couch armrest with pockets so you'll never again be forced to spend 10 minutes looking for the remote.

    25. A stand so you'll have a place to store all your umbrellas and also be able to quickly grab one when you realize it's raining outside.

    26. An over-the-toilet organizer because, when multiple people use one bathroom, you somehow always need more storage no matter how big that bathroom is.

    27. And a handy app called Tody that lets you divide your household chores so you don't get stuck cleaning the bathroom EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Plus, it turns claiming your tasks into a sort of game, where you get to "check in."
