When purchasing vegetables, slice, cut or chop them when you buy them. Then place them in seal-tight tupperware (NOT plastic bags). They will stay fresh longer if in tupperware. While cutting vegetables may typically aid in faster spoiling, remember you really shouldn’t “stock-up” on vegetables, anyway. If slicing vegetables such as onions and peppers they should last about 3-4 days in tupperware. Tomatoes will last 2-3 days. As for lettuce, chop, wash, DRY and place a papertowel in the tupperware. If the veggies are already prepared, you will be much more apt to eat them.
