caboodle

This one's for you Katie S....

Proof that the caboodle does exist. Ages ago I asked Beth where her nail polish remover was and she casually said "Its in the closet in my purple caboodle". I teased her to no end about it and well... I still do. I thought that was just what she called all little plastic cosmetic containers, but no..it really is a brand name caboodle and its not just purple, its purple sparkle.

If you are not a child of the 80's than you probably have no idea what I am rambling on about. Caboodles were awesome. I had one that was two tone, peach on top and turquoise on the bottom. It was the perfect thing for sleepovers because it could hold cassette tapes, makeup, scrunchies, my crimping iron, and hairspray.

Beth, way to still rock the caboodle. But if I start finding scrunchies in there... then we have a problem.

My swirly pink Caboodle with the purple handle is in our upstairs bathroom closet... still "personalized" with the stupendous nail polish paint job I did on it when I was oh, 9? :) Love the Caboodle!

Ooooh, I'm pretty sure we had the same one. Peach and turquoise. My parents might still have it...might have to check on that.

Mine was a two-toned peach Caboodle. Sadly...I think we got rid of it in a garage sale.
Thanks for the post, Erin!

Man, I wish had held onto my Caboodle! I think I also had the peach and turquoise. I might have to check ebay for one for the girls....:)

This post made me smile so much that I had to comment. I had a collection of Caboodles back in the day, all pink.

Man, I miss Caboodles.

Oh how I love caboodles. I so wish I still had my pink one to put stuff in, or let Grace play with, she would have LOVED it. Beth, I am so happy you still have yours and use it.
