I ordered a set of these from Amazon and they work great. So great in fact that one went in Scout and two are at the sticks and bricks (since we are in Florida, more precisely sticks and concrete block
) home. We paid a little over $6 from Amazon.
Give them a try, I think you will like them...

We have had a multicolored set (different brand I think) for several years, also from Amazon. DW likes the colors, as she can use one color for raw poultry only and such to help prevent contamination. The fit perfectly in the cabinet above the stove (C190P with the newer kitchen style, no fan). They bend and hook behind the top front and rear bottom of the cabinet, out of the way and easy to get at.
Since we put the drawers in the under stove compartment, we also no carry two of the plastic, rigid cutting boards. The sit vertically in the tallest drawer, and help keep thing in place. The rigid ones are nice to use as a lap tray, on an uneven picnic table, or to carry food on when taking it outside. For us a bit of overkill, but nice, but the flexible ones take care of 90% of what we need.
