I developed the habit of keeping a stash of large brown envelopes pre-printed with the former owners' names and new address. Then as the mail came in, about once a week I'd shove everything in the envelope, weigh it, attach the appropriate postage, and send it on its merry circuitous way.

In the current setting, hand-delivering the errant mail gives me an excuse to see what the Techies are doing with the old place. After the big move, maybe we'll e-mail photos back and forth. "Here's what we did with your house!" "Here's what we did with your money!"
