Nuts never go bad. I've eaten nuts that are weeks old and it was fine. Also, cucumber is a fruit, not a vegetable.

I keep my flour in the fridge. It keeps any grain bugs at bay. Most fruits/vegetables are kept in a basket on the counter and used quickly as possible - they don't have a long shelf life. Although I can cut up celery and store it in the fridge in a container with ventilation in between paper towels which help to keep moisture down. Onions and potatoes go in the garage on a shelf where it's cool and dark. So can apples - but not together as apples give off a gas that can make other fruits or veggies go bad. I freeze some bread if we have too much. Just leave the slices on your counter for about 15 minutes to thaw and they are ready for whatever. If some fruits are going to ripen quickly, like in summer, I cut them up and put them in freezer bags, lable them and freeze them before they go bad. I don't like to chop onions because they really make me cry, so I usually buy frozen ones, but if I have to buy fresh I buy a few, chop them all up and then freeze them for future use. I also freeze lemon and lime wedges. You neven know when you need a margarita. I am not a 'prepper' or anything like that, but I don't want to waste what we paid for and keep it to use as long as we can. I just have taught myself a few tricks to keep our pantry and fridge going as long as possible! Have fun experimenting!
