This was the first thing that came to my mind. If you want to go the DIY route, a strip of 1x material with holes drilled in it would be really easy to make...as I just realized @ratchet freak suggested in his answer.

That picture of the tool chest with all the drawers open makes me cringe. Good way to end up with all your tools crushing you while you lie on your garage floor trapped under the cabinet.

The "much" more quantity is the cube of the thickness increase. For area moment of inertia of a rectangular cross section, I = w*t^3/12. So a 3/4" sheet of plywood will deflect 3.4X less than a 1/2" sheet of plywood, and 3X less than stacked 1/2" + 1/4" sheets.
