What difference does it make if I have strong or weak passwords for my financial stuff? If the password is a password keeper program and it's hacked, I'm exposed.

I have strong passwords for my financial stuff, they are as long as possible with random letters and numbers. The ability to continuously accurately type these passwords, change them regularly, and keep a running list is sort of manageable. Add in all the social sites, boards, quilting stuff, media, every place I've applied for a job, health insurance apps, my doctor's office, shopping, civic organizations, volunteer places, and games, and maintaining passwords is a chore.
