After I buy a melon from the store I immediatly cut it up and weigh it out into ziplock bags. The look so enticing everytime I open the fridge and it makes it easy for me to grab and go. Plus I know how much to account for.

People sometimes look at me funny when I carry three or four bags of carrots to the scale. But pre-bagged fruits and veggies can vary in weight, and checking to get the heaviest bag gets me more for my money!
A "pound" of carrots may weigh more; weigh a few bags for extra savings. Heads of broccoli, stalks of celery, etc. can be checked, too.
I have a desk job where there is not a lot of physical activity. I often get hungry while processing papers or entering data, so I have taken to bringing a pre-peeled orange or carrot and celery sticks to work with me and placing them where I would normally set a bag of chips. Grabbing a piece of fruit or a pre-cut veggie is as easy as popping a potato chip, and is much healthier. Now when I snack I have to snack healthy - there's not a whole lot of junk around! 224
