    I used to save them on my hard drives (txts, excels) but since it crashed a bit ago causing me to lose much valuable data that I had no backup access to I started using

    Funny to see that IM'ers fail in keeping encrypted cloud backups, and resort to pen and paper...

    edit.
    Arrogance? Oh jeez...

    Excel works but sometimes for a new project I have use Microsoft One Note and yes I back all of this up on a regular basis. Remember my friends, computers sense fear! I don't trust the cloud since I'm not sure who is doing their backup!

    I use Google docs / spreadsheet heavily. Selected files to Dropbox. Evernote for everything else.

    Open Office Calc (spreadsheet) placed in one folder. Backups are crucial!! I don't trust clouds.

    I use Excel to record all my data. Both excel and word have password protection built in.

    I'm very lazy, so in the past I would rarely backup my data. So with this in mind I decided to get Raid-1 hard drives. If one hard drive fails, I've got all my data on the other.

    Now I still have to be wary of thieves stealing my computer, but if there's a fire or any other natural disaster, you'll find me standing outside my home holding my computer.

    Same. I trust only myself regarding sensitive info and not some idiot Level 1 tech who just graduated last week looking after the cloud servers.

    I just save all the info on my PC and then back it up on a USB. Then every 3-6 months get a new USB rinse/repeat.

    Lots of good ideas mentioned, bottom line is you gotta backup.

    I have .txt files of most information, like usernames and passwords to my websites and accounts. Don't worry, all the passwords of even slight importance are marked as "usual password" which I remember. I keep track of finances on a little Linux program called WXBanker. It's just a really simple bookkeeping program; lets you put in a positive or negative dollar amount, and a little title for it.

    Once in a while, I back all of this up onto a portable hard drive.

    One of my projects in development is a central interface to all my accounts across everything and aggregating the data. So that way instead of having to go to each site I just login to it and can access everything.

    For now though most of its stored in an encrypted truecrypt container.
