    're-invent the wheel'
    Welcome to the forums.

    "If someone reinvents the wheel, they waste their time doing something that has already been done by other people, when they could be doing something more worthwhile."

    I found that by clicking on Reference near the top of the page and then Idioms. You could try that now, so you'll know how to do it next time.
