Create about 3 or 4 different passwords. Then use password "a" for website 
logins where confidential info isn't a concern. Use password "b" for your 
personal login, use password "c" for root logins, etc.  This way you only 
need to remember about 3 or 4 passwords and it becomes pretty obvious where 
you would use each.

Just some thoughts...
