I need advise!

My son goes to his fathers every second weekend and i send a bag of clothes for him. 9 times out of 10 some of the clothes dont come back. His father works in the same town but doesnt drop his clothes off and doesnt want me to go get them from his house as his "new girlfriend" doesnt want me at the house. I am sick of having to buy new clothes for my son as its expensive being a solo mother.

What should I do??

Let him know that he appears to have plenty of clothes for your son at his house given the number that have not been returned, so until some of them start coming back, you won't be packing a bag anymore.

Alternatively, just send him with second hand clothes you pick up at op shops or second hand clothing stores. Don't send him in new ones.

However, dad should have clothes at his house if he has him regularly.

Make him buy clothes for when hes there and just send him in a set that hell come back in just make sure he knows what size to get and let him know that you wont be sending him with clothes as you cant keep affording to buy new clothes constanly

Ive told his father that ill send a bag of clothes for him and a list of whats in there, if things dont come back on sunday then the next time he has him my son goes in what hes in and his father can sort clothes for him while he is staying at his. His father only has him 2 days a month (his choice not mine) so i dont want to leave clothes at his house because he will get more use out of them at my house.......good idea?!?!?!?
