Find files including certain string

I often use this but always forget so write the memo here.
$ find /PATH/TO/DIRECTORY/ -type f -print | xargs grep 'hoge'
Then can search files including 'hoge' string.

    -type f is to search with file name
    Or you can use -type d to search with folder name.
    I also tend to forget it so comment here just to memorise :D
