I frequently do internet searches for phrases, idioms, or sayings that contain a specific word. Say I want to know all the sayings/phrases/idioms that contain the word "two." Sometimes I find one or two items but never a great big list. I'm wondering if any of you has a go-to site that's helpful with this kind of search.

Thanks in advance!

Oooh, Jody. Great question.
What about this??
http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/
I typed in the word "fish" and got several idioms using that word. Let me know what you think.

Oh good. I'm glad it might work. I simply Googled "idiom" and that's what I got.
There's also this one
http://www.idiomsite.com/
It's alphabetical by the first word of the phrase, so it's not really what you're looking for.
I'm sure you can find others.
