Killing two birds with one stone...

Can you think of a less violent way to express the idea behind "killing two birds with one stone"? What do we have against birds anyway?

I would suggest "killing two mosquitos with one swat". It's violent, but in a productive way! Any other ideas?

Hmm, it's akin to multi-tasking, but not exactly (and the term 'multi-tasking' just isn't as colorful/colloquial).

Mending two rips with one stitch?

How about, "accomplishing two things simultaneously?"

Or, maybe, "Save a bird, work harder?"

You could, say, say that last expression while keeping "a bird in the hand (is as good as two in the bush)"
