So as to, as in We paid off our purchase with a credit card so as to avoid withdrawing cash from the machine. This idiom is always followed by an infinitive. For a synonym, see in order to.

"We use in order to with an infinitive form of a verb to express the purpose of something. It introduces a subordinate clause. It is more common in writing than in speaking:

[main clause]
Mrs. Weaver had to work full-time
[subordinate clause]
in order to earn a living for herself and her family of five children.

[main clause]
We all need stress
[subordinate clause]

in order to achieve and do our best work.
The negative of in order to is in order not to:
They never parked the big van in front of the house in order not to upset the neighbors."
