There are a lot of options when your want and application to store and manage your passwords. Maybe the best known options are:

But if you are the kind of guy that wants everything simple (KISS principle, remember?), and done by your own, then you can do it.
Generate your passwords randomly

Store them securely
Copy the generated password, and paste it in a simple text file, after that, encrypt that file.
gpg -c passwords.txt
Use a very strong passphrase. Delete the original file:
When you need your password again, just decrypt the file:
Enter the passphrase, and you have access to your passwords.
