Things every '90s girl kept in her Caboodle
Being a kid or a teen in the '90s, means you grew up right on the cusp of some major social changes. You went from writing out dozens of copies of a superstitious chain letter on binder paper with an erasable ballpoint pen, to getting your first email address (@aol.com, of course) and experiencing the 24-hour reachability brought on by carrying that sweet Motorola pager (covered in stickers and nail polish doodles, duh). For us '90s girls, perhaps it was the act of straddling the thin line before, and after, the shifting technological and social tides leading up to the Y2K years, that's a reason why we find ourselves so nostalgic about all things pre-new millennium. Bright plastic, scratch n' sniff everything, and big-hair-don't-care fashion was the order of the day, and we love to relive those era-specific fashions, and get back a little bit of that childhood feeling.
So let's talk Caboodles, fellow '80s babies and '90s girls, and inhale the palpable nostalgia inherent in these hard plastic tackle boxes for all your lady things. If you were a middle class girl who had a subscription to Teen Beat, you definitely had one, or even two: one for all things beauty, and one for all things crafting. Or, if you more were ballin' on a budget like me, you got one as a special present from a cool aunt or older sister, and hoarded every little treasure you came across within its glossy, pink and seafoam green drawers.
So what did you keep inside yours, ladies? Just kidding, I already know! Here are the top 13 things every '90s girl kept in her Caboodle.
