|11echo||I Just picked up a Craftsman's 3 draw tool chest, and had the same problem as you. I went over to Harbor Freight last night (new store in my area) and they had a couple typed of draw liners. One came in 2 colors ...black & gray. I picked up the gray colored one, it's perforated and is soft so won't slid around in the draw or let the tools slid around. One roll easily handled all 3 draws and enough to re-do them again if need be. A roll of this stuff was about $7.|

|knighthawk||Cardboard, corrugated stuff ! cheap and disposeable, last for years . Also I used to put a number (labeling tape ) on each drawer or section telling howmant tools in the drawer.|

here you go, there are a couple other ways to utilize this design/concept, for my wrenches, this way worked the best (so far...) It pulls out of the drawer in case I ever want to put mat under it or change things up....
This also makes it easy to spot missing tools.

|azbubba||if you really want to be organized you can do whats called shadowing your tool box, ima apache helicopter mechanic and we are reqd to do this, what you do is draw an outline of your tool and cut it out. it may take up more room but it looks good and you can keep a good tool accountability. also as for foam, i used the foam sleeping mat found in the sporting good section of walmart. i will get some pics of my tool box at work and post them up so you will have an idea what it looks like.|

I really have no idea how many differant colors of tan there are, but but bet it would be a safe bet to place that a woman could name all of them though. LOL

|Jardine32||I like the indoor outdoor carpet too. The drawer liner stuff works good but it seems to trap alot of dirt. I just vacume the carpet.|

Well I re did Some of mine with vinyl flooring.
You can get it @ any flooring shop I got mine for free because it was left overs.
Its extremely tough & I chose white because it show s the dirt & if you drop something small into a open draw its easy to find what you lost
Its super thick so it does not require any glue & it does not slide around.

Slightly off topic, but....
...Wow, I must've married a great one. My wife put black and white checkerboard contact paper over the shelving in our kitchen. No tans, cremes, or frilly pastel flower prints even made it into the selection process. Of course, she did paint the livingroom pink.....
In a while, Chet.

Well guys. I had to go by walmart today anyway. I picked up two rolls of the stuff. I have more than one box that needs it.
There were a lot of colors available, but I grabbed black.
Just how many tans do women need in the kitchen? I was not aware that there was more than one.

|Workingwoods||I've found the drawer liner stuff at Harbor Freight for a decent price. I use it in drawers full of wood lathe tools, and it's held up well. I like Chet's Velcro idea, though.|

Am I the only one in the world who does not know about this stuff?
Thanks guys. I will definitely look the next time I drive out to that end of town.

|Irelands child||I've been using the Wally World kitchen stuff for years - it's a lot cheaper the the so-called tool store drawer liner and from what I can see, identical. There's a couple of kinds - the expanded foam and the solid rubber backed which I have on a couple of roll cab tops. This stuff wipes down fairly easily as well|
