I would advise against your method, because you just reduced the search space for anyone wanting to get in from millions of possibilities to just 160 different passwords. Having a list with your actual password on it makes it pretty easy to brute-force.

Same goes with an earlier suggestion of having your passwords on a slip of paper in your wallet but not indicate which passwords are for what. Very easy to brute force.
