I'm fine using KeePass. I used it for a while and I'll never come back. It stores all your usernames and passwords in a crypted file, unlockable with a master password. It also generates random passwords for you

Also you could use avery blank 3x7 sticker sheets and even print the passwords on them using your computer

If you have a computer with a floppy drive you could just make a hidden folder in the floppy disk using the alt 0160 trick and put a text file in it with your passwords, then you could make really long impossible to guess passwords the just copy and paste them.

I'm glad you added that you could rotate the inner disk to for more than one password.
I always try to change up my passwords a little between the various websites I visit, for safety reasons, and I can't always quickly recall which sites have which variations.
So simple and well done!

I use firefox's password function, a password randomizer and the FEBE plugin to make backups.
