What is the origin of "kit and caboodle?"

as in the whole....

Report as

The words kit and caboodle have rather similar meanings.


A kit - is set of objects, as in a toolkit, or what a soldier would put in his kit-bag.

A caboodle (or boodle) - is an archaic term meaning group or collection, usually of people.

So a group of soldiers with their kits is what it seems to originated from. http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/kit-and-caboodle.html
