I don't know if anyone has ever submitted this idea, but I'd like to share something I do. I bought an inexpensive address book (from a dollar store). I started using it for websites or internet use. The alphabetical order is very helpful. I put in the web name on the name, website address on the address or the www.com address. Then if I signed up on the (free) sites, I enter the user name I used, the password, the email address I submitted to sign up and question hint and answer I submitted to sign up. This way, I keep track of my many favorite websites by adding short descriptions and the ones I signed up for free (such as this one).

what a wonderful idea ! you are very clever. I can't always use the same passsword for all my sites and often end up clicking on the "I forgot my password" button
plus if anything ever happens to my computer i will have a list of all my favorite places I go to
thank you so very much for this tip (04/16/2008)
Thank you for this marvelous hint. I'm always forgetting web addresses and my passwords. I'm going out and buy one ASAP just for this purpose. (04/16/2008)
I buy Fat books marked off a - Z tabs in marker for all my websites, screen names/email addy's of friends and business', etc... I keep seperate Fat Books for each category (recipes, shopping, medical, sites and info, etc...) I do keep 2 - 5 x 8" books A - Z marked for my screen names and membership/passwords... The very best thing i have done to keep track of my info... (04/16/2008)
This is really a good idea. I've written down passwords, only to lose them in a pile of papers on my desk. So time-consuming to find them again.
This would also be good when you know you're going to be using a computer at the library or at school. Just take the address book with you. (04/17/2008)
