I know you asked for advice from people who already moved in, so take
this for what it's worth...  We have designed into our common house
(that is, if they survive the current round of budget cuts :-( ) 
a bunch of cubbies - one per household - in the foyer area (not 
right in front but around a corner).  Anything found laying around
gets put in the owner's cubby or into a bin if you don't know whose
it is.  Of course, this does not solve the problem of people 
having to pick up after the others, but at least there's a place
for miscellaneous stuff.
