I need some advice.

My dad's mother passed away a few weeks ago. We weren't close and her death hasn't affected me at all, but my dad is pretty torn up about it. I'm very sad for him. The problem is, though, that he keeps trying to give me all her stuff. I've accepted some sentimental things because I felt like it was the right thing to do, but he keeps trying to push things I will never need, will never have any use for, and have no sentimental value to anyone. They're things like duffel bags, old purses, reusable grocery bags... things that will just collect dust.

How do I keep saying no without hurting his feelings? He is starting to get a little upset, but frankly, I have no room for this stuff and it's better off being donated. I know the end-game is to donate what's not going to be used, but I kind of want to skip the "do you need/want X" step, because I don't.
