Blue electrical boxes are to far in the drywall
 
I have been finishing my basement and for the most part it looks good. PROBLEM - I set the blue plastic electrical boxes to far into the wall. The drywall sticks way out. I have seen the small plastic spacers at harware stores. Does anyone know if those work or is there a better extension product to fix this bonehead problem that I created. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

box extenders work very well in bringing the face out flush with the finished wall
