Do you see the little colored stars on the box page?
You can use these to mark a box for future reference.
When you want to easily find it again, use the Advanced Search.
At the bottom of this page you can specify all boxes you've marked with a colored star.

You can use the stars any way you choose.
And now a plug for Premium Membership: you get more stars (and other nifty gadgets.)

Hi mitchellFamily, and welcome.

Once you've tagged some boxes you can name your tags by clicking on Preferences in the My Page tab dropdown, then on Letterboxes to:
"Set your letterbox preferences—name your tags, set up default searches, and display options for clues".

If I'm planning a trip, I'll tag the boxes I want to try to find and name the color tag with the place we're going. If I print clues I tag the boxes green to remind me not to print them again. I use another tag for mystery letterboxes that I want to solve. Once it's solved I remove the tag.

If you run out of tags you can use two colors and then run an advanced search and save the search with a name describing the meaning of the two colors. But like Grrly Girl, said being a premium member and having more stars (8 colors instead of 4) is nice.

Cool! Thanks for the info. I also happened to LOOK at the bottom of the search results and actually saw a Tag functionality. Will have to play around with it.
