I've used sand, pine shavings, aspen, crushed walnut, crushed corn cob, hard wood chips, and newspaper. For ease, I prefer newspaper to all the rest. Of these, I do not recommend the crushed walnut, the hard wood chips, or the crushed corn cob for various reasons. The one I prefer and use almost exclusively now is simply newspaper. I like it because it is essentially free (I have a subscription), it is delivered to my house, it is easy to store, easy to change, and I am recycling. The snakes do just fine on it. I usually fold up two to three sheets on the bottom of the cage, and sometimes shred some to simulate foliage or surface debris. I've bred my KSB, rough scales, and several varieties of Rosys on newpaper for many years without a hitch. Newspaper is not as attractive or natural-looking as other substrates. This is its only downfall that I can see.
Best of luck,
