It depends on the complexity of your snippets and the number of them.

The snippets I use personally have mostly fixed data that usually do not have to be changed after it is inserted. Because of this, I prefer to use the Toolbox to store my snippets.

Simply drag a piece of code in the Toolbox and right-click on it to give it a proper name. Double Click on it to reuse it. If you have too many of them, you can organize them by adding tabs to the Toolbox.
