Anyone with a small bathroom knows the frustrations that can arise in a tiny shower, including balancing pricey products on precariously small ledges, bumping into bottles at every turn, and finding enough space to hang your towel until you turn the faucet off. If any of the aforementioned annoyances resonate with you, you've come to the right place. As apartment dwellers, we know from experience how aggravating a bathroom with minimal storage space can be, so we've compiled some of our go-to organizational tools for saving luxe products from the ledge.

Ranging from a hanging shower caddy to a leaning ladder storage system, these 11 bathroom buys will help prevent your products from slipping off the bathtub edge ever again. Because when you're splurging on $45 soap, the stakes are surprisingly high. (No judgment here—we love Aesop's bath products too.)
