Cheap, yet effective surround sound setup?

I've never been too fussed about surround sound for games or movies, but it's beginning to bug me how my music feels so confined to one corner of the room. I'm not after "true" surround sound; stereo output over multiple speakers would be fine so maybe I can save a little cash in that respect. I'm guessing the latest tech would have me installing wireless speakers all over the place, but it all seems quite expensive so maybe old-fashioned wires are the way to go? My music is solely in MP3 format by now, so it might be simplest to use my PC rather than buying a seperate system.

Anyone got some ideas for me?

I've no real solution apart from buying a good system to pipe everything through, I know there are some bluetooth speakers that can be chained together but when I think of charging up each speaker individually it probably isn't worth the hassle.

What I pretty much do lately is just move a decent bluetooth speaker about with me.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out
