Storing greens

I have found that purchasing a variety of greens is a challenge. Baby spinach is my staple but I try to get kale and beet greens in there too. I do want to add a wider variety of greens but I find that washing, draining and storing the leaves is tough. For instance I got food poisoning from my spinach I had not sufficiently dried, not a fun couple of hours.

So my question is can I store cleaned leaves in small bags in the freezer and take them out the night before? 

It's not like I want then to last for months, but even drinking two nutriblasts a day for inflammation its hard to get the variety I think I need.

Freezing is a great way to preserve your greens. You can use take them right out of the freezer and put them directly into your Blast. I like using frozen veggies and fruits in my NutriBullet because it makes it nice and cold.
Thanks for confirming Sarah
What did she mean by, she didn't sufficiently DRY the leaves??? Thank You so much, Ray
I was reading some post and happened upon this topic on freezing greens. I didn't know that one can freeze "fresh" uncooked greens. Since I went out and purchased some of the ingredients for some of the recipes (two recipes) from the Nutriliving website, I better go ahead and freeze my ingredients before they go bad. Fresh, organic items I purchased from MOM's organic. Thanks for the info.
