If you know how to save text, then you should be able to write your own code
to store ("persist") your objects, shouldn't you?  Trying to do so might be
a good learning excercise... ;)

Anyway, I agree with Bob Gailer's advice, and I'd suggest you play around
with several options, learning as you go.  If you design your code
appropriately, you can even start now with e.g. a persistence layer that
uses Pickle (or your own home-brewn save/load code that uses ini file or
text file or whatever), and later move to an SQLite store or even another
relational database engine.
