Open your Gear menu and hover over any items you currently have. It's best to do this on items no longer needed, with less helpful stats or lower levels. You'll notice a Destroy button beside the Equip button on the item. You can instantly remove the item from your inventory by pressing the Left stick of your controlling down and confirming your choice. This will open up some free space for opening new chests, but you won't receive the sell value of the object, and there is no getting it back after you destroy it.

This a quick method to free up space, but you'll want to try to make some trips to Hogsmeade for those extra Galleons instead or complete some of the Merlin Trials to gain more space.
