I use awallet myself but there are a few good ones.  It needs to have
a master passphrase and of course encrypted store.

The thing about a password keeper is the incremental effort for
the next unique password for the next website that needs one is pretty
minimal. That means you generally use unique passwords more and they're
truly unique, not just blahMSN, blahAdobe, blahGmail etc which people
can have a good go at guessing.

I generally, but not always, use different emails with a different
suffix too. It stops simple matching and helps track down where spam
comes from.
