Socket holder

What is the best way to "organize" about 100 sockets (1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" drives) in a 20" toolbox?

(I've tried the Lisle plastic trays but they take up so much room in my toolbox that there's little room for my other tools).

I like the socket holders that are thin metal and the sockets snap into. They keep your sockets in order, know if one is missing, can carry all them with you to the jeep if needed, and the handle can be cut off to save space.

I got the ones from Harbor freight. They were $1.99, for a 3 pack 1/4,3/8,1/2. They work great. I have not had an issue with socket falling off.

edit: these are the ones I got.
