Kill two birds with one stone

Idiom
Kill two birds with one stone
Meaning
To succeed in achieving two things in a single action.
Origin

Kill two birds with one stone

Remember the story of Daedalus and Icarus from Greek Mythology? The father and son who escaped from the Labyrinth on Crete by creating wings and flying out. Rumor has it that Daedalus killed two birds with one stone in order to get the feathers of the birds, and create the wings.

Examples

Mary is a busy person, so she decided to read her emails on her way to work, killing two birds with one stone.

Yesterday, I killed two birds with one stone and listened to a radio documentary while changing the car tyre.

If you go running with a group of people, you can kill two birds with one stone and socialise while getting some exercise.
