How to get double-sided mounting tape off a wall you can't paint?

I recently moved and there are some patches on the wall of half-removed double-sided mounting tape. My inclination would be to just get something very sharp and scratch it off, but since we can't afford to repaint the wall, we'd have ugly scratches on it. At the same time, we have hung some further stuff with this sort of tape and I unknowingly used way too much. Everything is hung just fine right now, but at some point on the hopefully far future, it will need to come off both the wall and the tin plates it's displaying, without damaging either wall or plate.
So how do you get this stuff off of things? Any way to do it without wrecking the wall or the things? Help!
