Every '80s girl basically had at least one friend who owned a Caboodle that was jam-packed with scrunchies, Wet & Wild make-up (we'll return to this at a later date), and vast quantities of plastic jewelery. I was not that friend, but I had one -- because she was a dancer, she actually had an excuse to use her Caboodle at competitions. She always looked so official carrying it around. It was the suitcase for 5th graders, and don't you dare compare it to a fisherman's tackle box! Do they come in teal with a baby-pink accents? I think not.
Now, unless you're a professional make-up artist, you probably haven't had reason to visit the Caboodles web site recently. I went there so that you don't have to, and there's a whole new world of girly organizers out there just waiting to be filled with crap you don't really need! Personally, I'm most taken with the vintage-y Swinger Caboodle, which reminds me most of the one I so desperately coveted back in the day.
