Why “Ted’s Approval”?

In college at UC Santa Cruz, some of my best friends started a band called Ted’s Approval named after me. Check them out here! I figured it would also be a good name for a website of things that I approve of.

Do you actually use these products?

Yes, all of them.

Do companies send you these products for free?

No, but that would be so cool. If you’d like to send me free stuff, please get in touch via the contact form below. That said, I would never write a good review if it’s not actually a quality product.

Do you make money off of your visitors who click your affiliate links and make purchases?

Yeah, but not much. Also I’m required to put this statement here: “As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.”
