I have a random password for all the things that matter, but I also have a generic strong password that I use for all the sites I don't give a shit about. Even if someone does happen to guess that password, they still won't get access to anything that matters.

That approach may expose you to other problems like identity theft. It's certainly better than weak, shared passwords.
