My sincere condolences to you. Do you have children? If your children are small, you should keep something from their father to give them when they get older. If they are old enough to help you look at the clothes in the closet, they might want to keep one of his shirts or hats, but pack up the rest of his clothing, shoes and belts and give them to a charity so that other men who need them can benefit from this.

If he has jewelry you can keep something for yourself such as his wedding ring, if you want, and offer the remaining items to the children or other relatives or if you have a financial problem you can sell them, of course a buyer would not pay you very much. If he has any special books, you can keep them until you decide if you or the children or a relative could use them or give them away. 

About the photos of your deceased husband, if you have children don't remove his photos. They need to remember him. If you are alone and his picture gives you heartache, then you can put the photos away.

According to our Hanafi Madhab, keeping things would be Makrooh but not haram. If a Widow Remarries, then it would be Haram for her to keep things of her deceased Husband.
