If I buy a lot of produce, I will try to use the most perishable ones first.
Tip on greens: I immediately wash my greens and wrap them in a cotton tea towel. They last longer, in my opinion, wrapped in the towel and refrigerated. I have some greens for juicing and other greens like kale I will make a kale salad. I mince the kale, and marinate it in olive oil, salt, avocado, lemon or lime juice. This way the green kale will last another couple of days due to the oil on it.
Tip on fruit: If fruit is unripe, I leave on counter and check daily. Once ripe, I place in the refrigerator and always use the ripest fruit for that particular days eating. If something like bananas, strawberries, peaches, berries, are about to head in the wrong direction, I freeze them. Some people don't agree necessarily with freezing, but I do it when necessary. Then I throw in the frozen fruit pieces into my shakes.
Hope this helps.

Certain veggies should not be kept in the fridge. These include, cukes and bell peppers. As I said in the freezer thread, you might get a thermometer and check your temps.
