cheap flexible wall surface for thumb tacks?

We live in a small, 100-yr-old house, thus after a couple of kids, my workspace (desk, PC, files, etc) got relegated to the basement. Help me figure out some sort of cheap, flexible surface to hang on my basement wall that I can put thumb tacks on (like you would with a corkboard).

As you can imagine, the basement of a 100-yr-old house isn't the prettiest of spaces. I'm tired of looking my dreary foundation wall, plus would look to have a corkboard to hang things with thumb tacks. I have about 4' x 6' of wall space I'd like to cover.
Problem is, about halfway down, the wall angles out a bit, so hanging your standard corkboard wouldn't work. Any ideas on some cheap flexible surface I could use.
I Googled "flexible corkboard" and discovered cork sheets on a sites like this one
, but it looks industrial & potentially expensive.
Any cheap solutions?
