while you are at it
While you are performing that action. The phrase is followed (or preceded) by another, related action that one does (or that it is suggested that one can do) simultaneously. Are you going to the store? While you're at it, can you stop at the cleaners? If you're washing the car, you might as well vacuum it while you are at it.
