Free online bartering hub, is determined to give mums an easier and more creative way to save money and ‘have it all', including a very handy husband dedicated to doing jobs around the house that your current husband can't, won't, or doesn't have the time or money to do.

Imagine no more nagging, stressing and complaining that your husband doesn’t help around the house. Now you can get a new husband, on The website has introduced the category ‘Handyman’ for women to list their husband/partners skills and ability to perform stereotypical “blokey” jobs such as guttering, plastering, shed assembly and other maintenance and repairs around the house, or mums can request other husbands’ skills in this area.

The new category ‘Handyman’ was introduced after numerous emails from men asking where they can list their skills and from the emails coming from women asking where they can find this skills-set. “Swapping products, services, skills and talents as a means to have everything in life and save money in the process, has become a family affair on mumswap. As a family, you swap for what you need and support another family simultaneously. It is an environmentally-friendly, philanthropic and thrifty initiative to be a part of”, founder Christie Nicholas explains.

To enjoy the benefits this category has to offer, mums, dads, families register on the website for free. They can list to ‘offer’ these skills in return for anything else. Alternatively, make a ‘request’ for this skill-set and offer anything else in return. Members can even swap for household chores, fashion, babysitting, beauty, books, health services, family entertainment, lessons, and business services. Then it is up to prospective husbands (or wives of the husbands) to get in contact for a direct swap.

“The best part is, this husband comes in, does the job, then leaves. All he wants is my barely used baby goods for his wife and new baby” Marina, Mumswap fan

“I’m a single dad and I’m pretty good at doing handyman work. If there are any single mums that need the support, I’d love some toys, cooking lessons or clothes for my kids in return” Steve, Mumswap fan
