Help! I'm at my wits end trying to manage my passwords

I hope you all can answer my questions, as I am sick and tired of all the passwords I have to remember for all my online accounts from my department stores to financial sites. What bugs me most about creating passwords is that, every darn site has their own requirements for passwords! Some are case sensitive, some require numbers and letters, some a combination of both, some even restrict the amount of characters I can use! The list of requirements go on and I'm tired of it. I'm not getting any younger and it doesn't help that my memory is really starting to let me down. Some of you are saying why don't you just write it down? I've done that, but because I live with a few people I try to keep it in a safe place, but learned that eventually I will forget where I stashed it. I'm sure I'm not the only who has this dilemma, so how does everyone keep up with all these passwords? What do you do? I believe there are password managers for computer, but are they safe and trustworthy? What if someone else use my computer, will they get compromised? What are my options? Please help me out, I'm at my wits end trying to manage my passwords. Thank you!
