I use it for the wine cellar, recipes, bookmarks, cigars, funny quotes
from my two year old...

Depending on your platform, it is trivial to install (could be an apt-get away).

If I do get around to web-enabling the stuff it won't be a duplicate
effort, as everything is already in the database.  And if you are a
CLI junkie like myself, then using psql will not be an issue.
