Hasn't been a struggle for me for many years now. I've been using a little shareware package to keep track of all my passwords, storing the whole lot in a database (always keeping one backup, too!) for which database you need one password to open it. That's all.

These days, there are even better and more flexible apps, that can organize your data into a nice hierarchy of groups for instanced (mine just keeps a list by "account name" - which I assign; choosing good names is therefore essential to find them back). Lots of extra nifty security features (such as being able to insert your password into a web form without using the clipboard), auto-closing the window after a time out, etc. And a lot of these apps are freeware as well. I not switching only because I'm used to mine and have a load already in there.

Go hunt them down (Google is your friend, as are the big shareware/freeware sites like Tucows), try them out, see what you like best. It won't cost you anything but time - which you will easily earn back.

P.S. you can also go to this page on my Ban Spam site, and look in the side bar for "Password Management" - I haven't checked the links for a while though, and there may be newer apps around now; but it will give you some idea of what features to look for.
