|I think certain things that are something precious from loved ones passed away you need to keep boxed up.. but maybe not set out. Maybe put it in some type of protection cabinet to show?
anything that doesn't have importance but sitting in a box.. books, etc.. give away on freecycle or something
Having an emotional attachment to something is a "use". So don't feel you have to toss stuff just because you aren't actually putting it to the use it's intended for. However, if you aren't using it* and aren't attached to it, get rid of it. If at all possible get rid of it by giving it to someone who can use it.
*Do have some consideration for your children on this one, if the tea set is really nice, you might compare the cost of new china to the cost of giving the box a home in your house.
