How do I best store my food so it neither goes bad nor attracts fruit flies?

My boyfriend and I have recently begun doing a lot more cooking at home. The food is great, but the fruit fly infestation wasn't (we've cleared that up now, thanks to help from others' questions here). We've started keeping everything in the fridge, but I know this isn't ideal for some foods: tomatoes, potatoes, onions, etc. How should we store our non-refrigerables yet keep the flies at bay?
We also have problems with our greens (lettuces, spices, greens, etc.) going bad prematurely in the refrigerator, even though we've been told that's the best place for them. How do we best store green leafy vegetables for up to a week in the refrigerator?
