I won a rather cool looking jukebox through an online drawing. I don't expect it to be delivered for another 4 weeks or so, so plenty of time to figure out what I am going to do with it.



Looking around my house, I could squeeze it in somewhere. But do I really need it or should I sell it? Although it looks like a jukebox, it is actually a 10 cd changer/Ipod dock/amfm stereo. I could put it in my office, but if I want music in there I already have my computer for that. It would fit in the living room, but I'm never in that room. I could put it in my sewing room, but once again, there is already a stereo in there. Room in my bedroom or guest room , but thats two pretty useless places for a jukebox.

I could sell it although probably for much less than its retail value. I does look cool so I am tempted to keep it. What would you do if you were me?

Sell it and buy a gadget for my sewing room or kitchen. Congrats on your good luck!

First, have a party. Then, either sell it or consider donating it.

And, of course, if it finds a happy place in your home, keep it. We need to freshen up a little of this and that every now and then.

If I weren't going to keep it for myself, I would probably donate it to a charity which provides a safe harbor for teens, such as a Boys' or Girls' Club, or a church which gives teens a non-alcoholic gathering place. It is really adorable, but I wouldn't have room for it (I need room for fabric), and I can see kids really liking it.

In general, I like this idea. Adding on to it -- you might get more value if you donate as a raffle item for your local humane society/high school band/etc. They often need a 'cool' item to suck people into the raffle, and this is definitely an eye-catcher.

I'm not sure about a church though -- the ones I'm familiar with already have sound systems for teen dances if they do that sort of thing -- a jukebox may go unused.

What about a senior center? Many seniors still know how, and like to dance, a jukebox could liven up their dances too.

If you like it.. and have room for it.. and will use it. then keep it. .otherwise sell it and buy something you would like to have.

Or.. of course. I could use some more campaign donations..

Don't rush off to sell it until you find out if you enjoy having it around. If you do, keep it! If not, sell it. Or donate it (youth shelter? women's shelter? group home? the list goes on).
