I always suggest making a meals ahead of time for the week on Sundays to get a head start on a busy week. If you take the time to store soups, stews, sauces etc., after a tiring day at work you can have great healthy meals at your fingertips.
If you don’t like having the same meals a couple of days in a row, consider making sauces and soups in bulk and freezing them. Pour the liquid in sealed freezer bags with a label and lay them flat in the freezer. You will save room, by avoiding bulky plastic or glass containers. In addition, you can quickly defrost a flat freezer bag under the sink.
With these small changes to your routine, you can make your work days a lot less hectic.
