My sister-in-law and her ex-husband have a terrible setup. They alternate every week, and not only do they split time they also split *things*. Since my ex-BIL is such a dickhole he does not let anything in his house go back to my SIL's house. This includes iPods, books, DSs, and even clothes. Yes, the asshat sends the kids back in dirty clothes if he has to so that anything bought by him does not travel with them.

That's how our arrangement is too, but it's not really about the things as much as it is about convenience. If the kid wants to take his iPod back and forth, he can. But we don't pack up clothes and ship them back and forth.

I was very impressed though when we all (GF, me, His Dad, and Stepmom) went school clothes shopping together and then whacked them up after they had been altered. This was a very grown up way of handling it and I was proud of all of them for it.
