Have you heard of Caboodles? You are probably going to say yes. Apparently I lived under a rock in the eighties when these were popular because not only didn’t I have one I’ve never even heard of them.
Hello Caboodle! Where have you been all my life?
Unfortunately though this one isn’t mine, my girlfriend picked this one up at the thrift store last week. I’ve since found out that Caboodles were basically huge make-up cases for young girls that open up like a fishing tackle box and have two levels and plenty of compartments and a mirror. Good grief, of all the 80’s trends out there why did I have to miss this one? I totally would have given up my bubble skirt for one of these babies!!
I love it! Of course I can’t help but immediately think of all the other possibilities it could be used for. This case would be perfect for hair accessories, jewelry, scrapbooking and beading supplies or even Polly Pockets which is exactly what my girlfriend is using hers for. Check it out.
As any parent of a little girl knows, those darn precious Polly Pockets come with a gazillion little pieces making the Caboodle an excellent storage solution for this organizing dilemma. Wouldn’t you agree?
Any ideas how I can sneak it out of my girlfriend’s house without her noticing? 🙂
