One thing my husband recommends with those (mainly work) passwords that make you change on a quarterly basis: names of the sports teams you're following at that time. You can do a year with pro sports, one with college, one with your high-school alma mater and then start on star athletes' names. More secure: trading consonants and vowels for digits -- maybe the first of both -- and make it a whole sentence. "R01lcrimsontide2013!" for instance.

Another way to do it is to create a 'set' of passwords. CitynameZipCode (Minneapolis55401) works great and is easy to remember - when you change your password, pick a different (and far away city). Or think of favorite phrases and use the first letters: IpA2tFoUSA is I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. Easy Peezy!
