soundproofing a wall with a door in it

I share a wall
with my roommate, which isn't as acoustically opaque as I would like (I'm occasionally woken up by late-night activities). What's the best/cheapest way to soundproof it?

Possible solutions include acoustic tiles (Too annoying to hang?), egg-carton foam (Does it work? Where can I buy it cheaply?), or other products that I'm not aware of. I'm not really concerned about aesthetics in my room too much, and have a preference for economical solutions that won't damage the wall. Also, I'm not very handy, so it's important that his be dead simple to implement (I'm willing to pay extra for this).
It's worth pointing out (for those who haven't clicked the link) that the wall has a door in it that we never, ever open. Will this need to be treated in any special way?
I'm looking for recommendations on specific products, preferably sold online, but I can do the brick and mortar thing if I absolutely have to. I live in San Francisco, in case that's relevant.
