same here. I did tear stuff before throwing it out. But how hard is it to make a list of creditors and different things and as you change them check them off. If it's important enough the previous owner's will contact the bank,etc and deal with their shite.

If it is just 1 or 2 banks I would call them and explain that the previous owner moved. They might like to know that. If it is more than that keep writing "Return to Sender, No Such Addressee" and sticking it back in the box. Eventually it will stop.
Of course, knowing some of our great financial institutions, they will probably send a letter to your house addressed to the prior owner that someone is returning their mail and telling the bank that they moved.
Over 4 years and I still get the previous owners mail about once a week.
We shred and toss now, unless it looks like something important, in which case we leave it out for the mail carrier.
After the previous owner moved out, we got continued to get the paper delivered to us every day. We didn't say anything because we assumed it would change over eventually. It came for three years before, I assume, he realized he was paying for a paper that he wasn't getting.
I've been in my house for 5 years and I still get mail. They must have skipped out on their taxes or something because the sheriff's office shows up at least one a year. Once they see me open the door they know they have the wrong person since they are looking for a Abu Nepal character and I'm not Indian.
