I suggest the Lori* method.

Have a friend with zero sentimental attachments to whatever you're going through come over and ruthlessly make 4 piles with you: keep without question, give away, think on it, and not going to keep but not in good enough condition to sell/donate. Then go over think on it. A true Lori will yank an item out of your hands and say "you hate this. It's getting tossed".

* Named for my friend Lori. She actually did yank books out of my hand while telling me "I'm donating this. You hated it the first time you read it." She pared me down from about 2000 to about 600.
