I think of frozen vegetable but some kinds don't taste very well when frozen such as cabbage, bok choy, green leaf veggies...
Do you usually freeze cooked or uncooked vegetable?
Fruits go into a bowl in my kitchen. Avocados go into the fruitbowl until they're ripe and then into the fridge. All other vegetables go into greenbags and into the vegetable drawer. I've had zuchinni last for a very loong time in those.
I go through the veggies I have and plan to use up what spoils fastest. I get a box every week from a local farm, so I don't control what comes, except for the things I add to the order.
You have to be careful when you buy veggies to get stuff that will be ripe at the same time. Tacos? Better make sure your avocados will be ripe at the same time as your tomatoes! I usually get hard avocados and firm tomatoes and plan to eat them later in the week.

The other thing is that if you get your veggies from the farmer's market, or better yet from a CSA, they are SO MUCH FRESHER than the grocery store stuff that they will last much longer in your fridge.
Case in point: We got our CSA box last Wednesday, then we had to tear up the whole kitchen to fix a ceiling problem (kids flooded upstairs bathroom - ack!), and then repaint. I didn't get to really do much with my veg box until tonight, and everything in there was as fresh as could be, including sensitive things like parsley and lettuce. I love CSAs!
I wash celery, and chop to lunch sized portions (DH loves to dip in pb), then store in a tupperware full of water. I just dry it off when we're ready to use it. It also stays for 2+ weeks. We usually eat it by then!
I get a CSA vegetable box every other week and I've had some stuff happily last 3 or 4 weeks in the fridge.
