Plumwise offers filtered referrals and recs
Six months after its launch, it seems Plumwise may finally be catching on. With roughly 300 members, the community referral site is run by two local moms who aim to provide a short list of the best providers and services in the Chicago parenting universe—as judged by fellow Plumwise members. Nothing makes the list without a thorough investigation by the Plumwise team, and providers are removed if member feedback warrants it. We dig that the site eliminates meaningless reviews, provider influence, and so-so options. For $20 per month, you’ll get access to the site, members’ forum, and unlimited recommendations.
