It is a pain in the butt--consolidate your passwords, write them down, put them into your phone, computer,wallet, purse, have them tattooed on your arm-heck I had so many that i printed them out & then laminated them
I only have 3 passwords that I use. All have to do with a certain topic/thing as to remember them easily. I use one of the three passwords based upon character count, how protected I want my account, etc. I suggest 2-3 passwords that are easy to remember. It makes managing so much easier.

Create an easy for you to remember base like this: the first initials of a person or favorite song and your favorite number. So if your best friend was named Bob Frank Smith and your favorite number is 13 it would be BFS13, then a symbol for extra security, any symbol you can easily remember, I will use the number sign (#) This is the part that is the same for every password: BFS13#. Then the next two represent the specific location or business it is for. So Wells Fargo would be WF and your home computer would be HC, office computer OC. The finished passwords would look like this: BFS13#WF, BFS13#HC, BFS13#OC. The same password yet personalized for the specific need.
I make all of mine 'password' unless if the website doesn't let me... which they often don't. so then i make it something I'm not willing to tell you guys haha. (or else you might get on to my ask account O.o)
First of never make the same password for all of your things you access, because once that password is taken from you then you might have to change a lot of passwords. Write all your accounts display name and password on a notebook that you keep secure and to yourself only.

i try not to use passwords. unless it is required. i don't necessraly go for complex password as i tend to forget them. If somebody whant to break in my stuff they will deactivate my password with a software that is going to access the SAM hives and reset the password or disable it. what ever the os or the software.. (A os is a software btw.) SAM = Security Account Menagment.
To me password are reserved for people that live in fear and need to reasure themselves that their false life information need to be protected against all. Especialy from themselves... As Passwords are only a false sense of protection.
Hackers and computer geeks do not need to woory about password. they use softwares that find it for them.
The easiest way remember all of your passwords and still keep it somewhat secure (better than having the *same* password for everything anyways) is to think of 3-4 numbers that you can remember easily and put them at the beginning or end of each password, along with something from each site/game that will remind you what the password is.
Example: Google E-mail: 5657gmail (or: gmail5657)
Then for the name site/game make it: 5757game, or whatever.. anyways, that's what I try to tell people. Having a series of numbers and a hint to yourself to remind you is a good way to have lots of different passwords and remember them.
Also, finding a word you like and adding numbers in instead of letters, example:
I use a Pass A and a Pass B. Every time I register for an important site, I update a notepad file that I keep. 1st column is site title, 2nd is username, 3rd says Pass A or B ...and I have both memorized obviously ...makes things alot easier
The smartest thing anyone can do for a lot of passwords is to go to "Roboform.com" & download it to your computer. It is so simple to use & very safe. One should never use all the same passwords. This is not free, but worth every cent you spend. I believe it is $29.95. You won't believe how you ever got along without it. It is the greatest.
just write it down in a text file, change the .txt extension to .jpg or any so no body will understand this files contains password. rename the extension when you want to see the password. source: theinfobyte
