If you like to organize and have the time. Start a neighborhood swap once a month. Often there is a clubhouse you can use for the swap if not take turns at each others home. Swap coupons, books, cloths, children s toys, games. It's more fun than a yard sale and keeps your neighbors close.
Invite friends and families if you all agree. You could make it a pot luck and have some games with drawings for added fun.
