We look at the calendar for the next 2 wks so we know if someone is working late or we need an easy meal. Also the weather if it's hot we plan grilled food instead of using the oven.

It works for us. And it avoids all the last minute trips to the store.
This is exactly what we do. I grew up with a mother who never planned beyond breakfast the next morning, and I hated it. We were constantly running to the store, or stopping to pick things up last minute. We try to plan out almost 2 weeks, and then shop accordingly.
