Topic: Getting Organized

Dialogue 1

Emma: Hey, Laura. You look stressed.
Laura: Yeah, I’m feeling overwhelmed at the moment.
Emma: What’s going on?
Laura: There’s much to do, and my apartment is messy. I can never find anything when I need it.
Emma: Maybe you need to get more organized. Have you thought about organizing your space?
Laura: How do I even start? It’s such a disaster!
Emma: Well, first things first – clear out any clutter. Get rid of anything you don’t use or need anymore.
Laura: Hmm. Okay. Then what?
Emma: Next, neatly put away all the things you’re keeping. Do you have storage containers or baskets you could use?
Laura: I’ve got some boxes, but they’re not very pretty.
Emma: That’s okay. You can always decorate them with wrapping paper or fabric.
Laura: Ooh, that sounds fun. Maybe I’ll try that.
Emma: And finally, make sure everything has its place. That way, you always know where everything is and won’t waste time looking for things.
Laura: Thanks, Emma! I think this will help me feel less overwhelmed.
