Here's something you can do, and it's absolutely FREE!
Don't play so loud.
Tell the rest of your band to grow up and tone it down.
But seriously, perhaps the front of your bass drum is too low, so that it is resting on the lugs rather than the spurs. Or, if you don't have them already, change your legs to ones that have spikes on the tips. Third option, there are attachments that go on the front rim of your bass drum that have mini legs with spikes that help keep your drum from moving. Fourth option, some company makes a carpet that has a bass drum stop at the front of the carpet.
Or, maybe you just play too hard. Lighten up on the pedal and use a mic if you need that much volume.
Barring that, tying the bass drum to your throne (as mentioned above) is a good brute force method.
Good playing can hide a crappy drumset, but even the best drumset can't hide crappy playing.

You can tape a piece of rope to the carpet. Make a small "u" shaped bend on the rope and tape or fix it somehow right in front of your bass drum legs. It'll work as a barrier and the drumkit won't move.

I'm having this problem too. Drums move all over the place when I play.
I'm thinking back, and it all started right after I was playing a festival gig and loaned my rug to the tech for the act that went on after us.
Dude swore up and down he'd call me the next day and get my rug back to me. Gave me his card, and everything.

Just go to any place that sells large rubber mats. My dads ole ladies son is an iron worker and while on a job that had those big industrial sized rolls of rubber, he cut me a piece big enough for my big kit and gave it to me free of charge. It works better than anything I have ever used before.
