Sometimes you just have to think on it a while (our frugal solution)

Back when we made more and had more money that we could spend on anything. Hubby bought me a Bose wave radio with a cd as I love music. ( he was making up of years of forgetting presents or getting bad ones and wanted to surprise me)

I loved then thing. It's sound is truly amazing. Lately our BOSE an older version has been having trouble finding discs. Very frustrating.

Hubby noticed this and was thinking about maybe it was time to move me from cd's to a ipod docking station. I could use the ipod we have. After all we no longer buy cd's but buy individual songs from i tunes.

But he knew I didn't want to give up my Bose sound and a new $400 or so Bose was way out of the scope of the pocket book.

So he thought about it and came up with an idea and checked to see if it would work. He spent $5 and bought a cord that lets the ipod plug into the AUX plug in and Now I can listen to the pod on my Bose.

I cried the first time I got to hear the new songs on the ipod through my Bose, the sound is awesome. very enjoyable.

That is our frugal solution.

Hubby doesn't realize how happy his $5 gift has made me.

Our Bose is from 2001 and we started having the same problem a couple years ago -- it will still work, but is very spotty in finding songs. I told my dh two years ago that we must be able to make an ipod play on a Bose (he didn't think so, but I persisted), and we ended up finding the same solution as you. Our mp3 player now lives on top of the Bose :).
