How can I meet the neighors?

We have lived here for two years and I don't know any of the neighbors. My DH worked a lot until I had to quit working when I was pregnant. And now I am testing out this stay-at-home-mom thing. But, I really need to get to know the neighbors especially the ones who are home with there children.

  • I was in the same boat and last august I quit my job to stay at home and work part time home based business, but I realized I did not know hardly any neighbors. ha! I started an exercise class 2 days a week to get to know some and also just gone walking a few times and knocked on doors and introduced myself.

  • Just go with a baked good and introduce yourself. Or if you are out with the kids, just start saying "Hi".

  • Can you put together a block party??? Or have a cook out and invite the neighbors? Stop by to set up a play date? Drop off some home baked bread, cookies or muffins and introduce yourself? Good luck!!

  • Back a cake, cupcakes, pie, or cookies. Bring them over and say "Hello, my name it ****. I live next door to you. Just wanted to stop by and get to know you. I have children around your age." That is what I did to mine. I backed cookies and brought them on over. I now know two of my nieghbors.

  • Knock on the door?

    Where do you live? In my (big city) neighborhood, our neighbors stopped by and introduced themselves. We hang out on the block in the summer.

  • Have a block party for the end of summer. Put out fliers and have fun with it. (If you're that ambitious.)

  • I ,make a "hello" basket, baked goos, and maybe a thoughtful craft, then invite them to a bbq!
