To me, the hardest part of freebies is trying to remember what I joined, when I joined and what DARN password I used!!! I guess the best thing would be to keep all this information on a memo pad....but I always keep putting it off.
Every time Vocal Point or anyone comes out with new products to try, I have to get them to send me my info in email again. It is SOOO annoying.

Does anyone else have the same problem........
or HEY.....a good solution??????

I use the name of the company as the password. It works most of the time. : )

Oh, I also add a foreign word at the end. It's always the same word.

What a GREAT idea! That would make it so much simpler!! I'm going to do the same thing.

I was doing something like that, a spreadsheet on the pc but got tired of it.

Not like it was hard or anything....

I have a spreadsheet for all my important access names/codes and my different email addresses - an entire page full!
It's crazy, because some want a specific number of letters, some want alpha/numeric, some want at least one capital letter and others a symbol - the worst ones are the ones with at least one of three or more of the above. In the beginning I was able to remember pretty much all of them, but now it's absolutely ridiculous... And then when you forget, you have to remember the "security questions/answers" a few with photos, and some others are are wayyyy out there

I use one specific email address for all of them because some sell their email addresses. I, too use the same password which so far has worked in all but a couple of sites. My biggest challenge is I don't remember what I've signed up for!
