Lewis Sandbeck founded ThriftyFun.com in 1999 as a community for people who seek creative and cost-saving household projects.  With the help of AdSense, it grew into a full-time job for his brother, mother, and him.

When the Sandbecks noticed that 40% of their users were actually using mobile devices, they decided to redesign their site using responsive web design. With the help of Google’s multi-screen resources, they began designing “for the smallest screen first” with added experiences for desktop users.

Today, ThriftyFun.com works for users on all devices.  Lewis notes that “we’re seeing mobile users actually visit more pages thanks to the new design”. Watch the video to learn why ThriftyFun.com decided to go mobile.

To learn how you too can provide a great site experience for all of your users, follow our multi-screen starter guide.
