Consider the following from Nick Parlante, a professor of Computer
Science at Stanford:

"I write the passwords down on a piece of paper at my house in case I
forget. The bad guy in Russia or whatever does not have some team of
ninjas that's going to break into my house and get passwords off my slip
of paper. The attacks are bulk, mindless affairs that work on the
low-hanging fruit. One technique for writing down passwords is to pick a
little suffix you memorize, like 'x936' or whatever, and that always
goes on the end of your passwords. Write the passwords down, but never
the suffix. That way, even with the piece of paper, a bad guy still does
not have the passwords. Or maybe it's better to just write the passwords
out clearly, so your family can access your email etc. if you are in the
hospital."

How about storing your username and passwords in an Excel file instead?
