Food Budget and Meal Planning

I have found that meal planning has helped to reduce my food spending, since I tend to plan around the specials and whats in the cupboards rather than just deciding what I want to do for meals while I'm at the store or even worse on the day that I'm cooking the meal.
I'm wondering what others do to help them stay on track with their meal plans - I work in fast food, so usually don't particularly feel like cooking when I get home.
One idea I've come up with is to set aside a night or two a week to cook meals for the week or at least the next few days, and freeze/refrigerate them (kind of like home-made and healthier TV dinners).
