Inventory is the one thing for which I've spent a little $, but:

-- Sell off excess inventory (I'm sure you found this) for gil. At first you'll just be selling off the 1/3 and 1/5 items, but later on when you've got lots of good level 15s, you can sell off the 1/10s, and so on.

-- OR: Use your excess inventory to upgrade your good equipment instead of using upgrade materials. Upgrade > Upgrade Equipment > Click on an item you want to upgrade. Then click the "Equipment" tab to pick throwaway items you're willing to consume. To make it easier when upgrading, try sorting your inventory by Rarity (ascending). Those 1/3 and 1/5 items are handy for this!

-- When you have two of the same item, you can combine them once one of them has been upgraded as far as it'll go. The combined item adds one more star. So a level 15 item (4 stars) becomes a level 20 item. This consolidates your stuff and makes stronger stuff.

-- You know all those staves that boost elemental damage? They may be the ones you want to sell. Pay attention to which characters you have that regularly DO elemental damage. If your fighters are all whacking away with Armor Break and Venom Strike and so on, a dagger that boots their fire damage will never come up because they're not doing firestrike. Likewise, if you've got a staff that boosts lightning, that's not much use for your healers that only ever throw healing spells or (at best) a Dia/Diara.

-- Once you've drawn soul break items (e.g. Traitor's Bow for Fran), those items are probably so overpowered that if you optimize a party, other characters who can use that type of weapon will still probably prefer it, even if they don't have access to its Soul Break. Once that happens, other, ordinary of the same type (other bows) become more expendable.

-- The exception is that items get a synergy bonus in the FF world they came from. So how do you decide which of those to keep? Well, if you've got 3 swords all from FFV, you're not likely to have all of them in use.

-- In general, use Optimize any time you enter a new FF to see which weapons get optimized as the best for that world (turquoise border). Pay attention to which weapons Optimize likes, which ones never get a look-in. It's not foolproof, but it can give you a sense of which ones you're honestly never going to use because you've got another item of the same type that's just a little better.
