Whenever you need inspiration for something, dig through your box of clippings for ideas that you can apply to your current project. If you have the space, you could pin the clippings up on the wall instead of storing them in a box. This way, you can be reminded of an idea whenever you walk by the wall.
From time to time, go through your clippings and get rid of ideas that are out of date or no longer interest you.
