How much is too much?

So I have been into the "Less is More" way of living and I have been going room by room getting things out and donating.  I have especially trouble with sentimental things and gifts people have given me.  What do you  keep or not keep? why? what do you have a hard time with? 

This is a quilt handed down to me and it has no story with it, I am not sure what family member even made it.  It's large and it's lumpy, too delicate to wash (therefore we don't use it), and I've already fixed it in three places where it has ripped open. Would you keep it or not?

Other items I struggle with are greeting cards, before I met my husband I had kept every single card I'd ever been given since birth.  I decided when I moved in with him not to move so much personal items like that since I thought it wouldn't be fair for my personal items to take over OUR space.  Well now I've collected a ton since we've been married and I don't know what to do with them. Ideas?
