Just shipped 20 large boxes from west cost to east coast, they're going to be sitting in the garage of where I'm staying for a month.  Using the Reminders app, I created Reminder for each box, in the subject line the box number and tracking number.  In the Notes field for each Reminder I entered the details of the box contents, thinking that I could later search for a particular item, find the Reminder for it and know what box it's in.


Wish I'd tested my theory as I've now discovered that while Reminders are searchable with Spotlight on my iOS devices, it only references the subject line -- Spotlight ignores Reminder comments.  Bummer :-(

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.4
