Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy (like pillows), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ’em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written before about the best shower curtains, a hair-catching shower drain, and the best in-shower organizers, here we’ve rounded up the best-reviewed shower caddies on Amazon, just in time for dorm-room shopping. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best plastic shower caddies

InterDesign Storage Organizer Basket

“Although it’s small, it fits all of the things that my larger one fit. It helps me save space in my dorm and it matches my theme color! I love it. I really like the fact that there are holes on the bottom, so when I get water in it, it drips right out.”

InterDesign Orbz Bathroom Shower Tote

“I’ve had a few gym shower caddies and this is by far my favorite. It fits nicely in my gym bag, drains well, and hangs on the shower faucet, so I don’t have to set it on the gross ground. I shower at the gym five days a week and I think this will last me a long time. It’s sturdy and holds everything I need!”

Best mesh shower caddies

Attmu Oxford Mesh Shower Caddy

“This is the most durable shower caddy I have ever owned! I have almost all of my toiletries in mine, and I still have enough room for my towel and a washcloth. The caddy does not feel like it is going to tear under the weight, and it dries fairly quick — as a college student who shares a bathroom and needs to bring a wet caddy back to my dorm, this is essential.”

Haundry Mesh Shower Caddy Tote

“I was looking at various different options for a shower caddy since I’m living in the dorms at school. At first, I was a bit skeptical about whether or not it would fit the Costco-size shampoo and conditioner bottles that I have, but both fit, along with a large container of bodywash, my Cetaphil, and various other shower needs. Love this caddy — highly recommended.”

ShowerMade Portable Shower Tote

“This was an essential purchase for my first year going away to school. The numerous pockets allowed me to carry anything I needed to the public bathroom. This tote has a combination of a large central pocket for things like shampoo, conditioner, and bodywash, and smaller pockets perfect for things like razors. The construction seemed to hold up very well over the year that I was away at school, and I never noticed any rips or tears.”

Best multi-compartment shower caddies

Honey-Can-Do Quick Dry Shower Tote

“I’m now a rising junior in college and have used this shower tote since freshman year. This thing is amazing, it has plenty of pockets for everything you need in the shower (and as a girl who uses a ton of products, from shampoo and conditioner to bodywash, shaving cream, and everything in between, it’s incredibly useful). I bring it into the shower stall and it dries pretty quickly. I put a ton of stuff in it and despite it all, there’s no wear and tear on it and it’s just as sturdy as the day I got it. Definitely recommend this for the college students out there, especially since it’s so easy to store if you study away from home.”

Handy Laundry 7-Pocket Shower Caddy Tote

“This caddy is exactly what I was looking for! I love how I can organize my shower products — the pockets are roomy, which make products easy to find and use. I’m a freshman in college who has to brave communal showering, but this caddy works wonders for my shower routine. I used to have a cylindrical, mesh shower caddy that made organization awful — I had to rummage through slimy bottles one by one. However, this caddy has the perfect amount of organizational pockets, and the mesh fabric dries quickly. I don’t need to worry about rust and slime like my other caddy.”

InterDesign Orbz Shower Tote, Small/Divided

“I may be old-fashioned, but I’m a bath kind of man. So my ablutions occur largely in the bathtub several times per week. This includes shaving my face. The problem is, I also need to use those same tools at the sink. That’s where this shower tote comes in. I keep it on the counter by the sink with my shaving gel, razors, mirror, comb, shampoo, face scrub, etc. Then when I need it for a bath, I grab the tote and set it in the side of our big tub. This gives me instant access to all the stuff I need. It’s fairly simple. It’s just hard plastic. However it has held up very well, and holds many of items. Can’t go wrong here.”

Best shower caddy with suction cups

The Club Bag Shower Bag Tote

“I recently started going to a gym and wanted something to hold my shower supplies. This bag is huge, and although I use smaller size items, it is large enough for full-size products. The suction is strong enough to hold up in the shower, although I did find that it works better when the wall is already a little wet. The string holding the suction cup is large enough that if you wanted to hang it from the knob, that would work, too. I would definitely recommend this product if you need something lightweight and easy to transport.”

Best hanging shower caddy

The Fine Living Company Premium Quality Shower Caddy

“I bought this shower caddy for our son’s first foray into college life and he loves it. For our freshman, this bag is so much better than an open, bucket-style caddy. The roomy bottom compartment holds multiple full-size bottles of shampoo, bodywash, etc. (I was amazed at how much he crammed in there!) The upper zippered compartment does a great job keeping razors, toothpaste, floss, etc. from falling out. The hook is a helpful addition because who in their right mind would put anything on a dorm shower floor?! The mesh material allows for plentiful airflow, which really cuts down on drainage and drying time — crucial for dorm rooms with minimal storage.”
