I'm somewhat guilty of this. Aside from my bank and email accounts, I was using the same password for most sites with a login.

As of yesterday though, I've started using LastPass, and now have a different password for every site. The passwords are generally 12 to 16 character long strings of random letters, numbers and symbols to avoid an easy dictionary-based attacks, and I've also setup two-factor authentication where it's available. Even with all that, I still feel like my data on any given site is easy prey to a hacker with enough time or skill.

Edit

If anyone is interested in setting up a password manager, LifeHacker has a tutorial on LastPass here.
