sell it in second hand marketor give it to a friend who need it. then,buy a new one.

put your old crt monitor into the attic and save because you may need it when the backlight burns out on new lcd

Get a second computer to use it for, or give it away. Or you could get a dual video card and use the CRT as a second monitor.

Sell it or give it to someone who needs a replacement monitor.

Make it into a fishbowl. Or (if you don't have fish) make a scrap computer with really cheap bits and pieces.. Failing that sell it (probably for next to nothing) to some-one who does have something to do with it.

you could start by disassembling it
