I have invested in a Sams Club membership and purchase in bulk. I also cook extra a few times a week so we have leftovers. I like ShesInHerApron on youtube.
I like spaghetti too. I always cook too much so the next day I take the leftovers and add more cheese and bake it to a spaghetti pie.

I find that crock pot soups and casseroles and lasagnas can be your BFF as you can make them in larger quantities then freeze/refrigerate them and defrost during the week.

I LOVE them and they are super yummy and can be made with tons of different ingredients. Meal prepping/planning is your friend and totally takes the pressure off.
