Just a thought, but maybe this would help a little:
cat ~/.bash_history | grep "apt-get install" | cut -d ' ' -f 4-

That's assuming you use "sudo" to install your packages (if you don't change 
the 4- to be a 3- at the end of the command) and that you don't clear out 
your .bash_history all of the time.

Just a thought,
