1. Invite Them Over for Dinner

When you’re battling boxes, imagine the relief of not having to locate the pots and cook dinner at the end of the day (especially if you have kids). If you have a new neighbor moving in, go over and introduce yourself and invite them for dinner some night soon. It doesn’t have to be a formal affair — in late summer, nothing quite beats a simple dinner of burgers on the grill, a hearty green salad, and grilled peaches topped with ice cream and shortbread cookies.
