I’m every woman, it’s all in me…” Chaka Khan’s lyrics read

The great part about being a woman? Everything! From getting your hair, nails, makeup done.

During a week of CVS Epic Beauty Event, a Caboodle retro makeup organizer caught my eye and I needed to have it immediately. It was half price so definitely a must have. It felt like I was going back in time just by holding this makeup box.

Here’s a little background on how this box came to be:

It was inspired by a male dominated tackle box made into a necessity box as a makeup organizer. In 1987, a photo of “Wheel of Fortune” co-host Vanna White was surfaced using a Plano® fishing tackle box to stow and organize her makeup collection. It innovated an idea at the Plano Molding Company launching a Caboodles in 1987 with the snazzy On-The-Go Girl™ Caboodle kit molded from the same functional designs of a tackle box.

“I did not know I was the one who started the Caboodle. I feel very good about being the inspiration behind the Caboodle because many years before that I went fishing with my dad every weekend, and of course he had a tackle box,” says White.

“I am such an organized person and it was the perfect box to organize all of my makeup,” she said.

Caboodles offers a wide variety of everything from classic cases to bags & totes where you can store hair and makeup products. Caboodles hopes the brand will empower a new generation of women. They remain great options for anyone looking to organize their favorite hair and beauty products or for those looking to add to their retro collectibles.
