I don't know if there is a "right way" to do this (though there are how-to's out there), but I'm pretty sure we discovered the "wrong way."
The morning after we moved in, my husband strolled in from outside with a newspaper in his hand. After reading it all he asked, "Hey dear, do some people get a lot of extra newspapers on purpose?"
Me: "Uh, yes. Especially on Sunday for couponing.Which he then did, but after she had already picked up all her other newspapers. Awkward...?
Him: "Well, it looks like our neighbor is into that. You should see if she can show you how."
Me: (Looking up from cooking). "Did you take that newspaper off her driveway?"
Him: (Silence). "What should I do? I didn't know.
Me: "You should definitely roll it back up in the bag and put it back on her driveway...after I read the funnies."
So here is my bit of advice for the day, when moving in to a new place, try to refrain from stealing your neighbors things... especially if they are on the HOA board and especially on Sundays. Stealing is never right, but I think it's probably more wrong on Sunday.
