I recently went through this with my family. It can be an emotional burden when surviving family members feel the need to keep and care for personal items unless they have a true interest in them. I don't want anyone to feel obligated to keep something of mine unless they really want it. They know they can donate or consign anything they don't want. We have written instructions on how all items should be divided. It makes it easy for everyone.
