It's definitely possible to fix the food budget. The problem is I don't know what to cook. I'm pretty tired at the end of the day, and don't usually have the energy to cook, hence the convenience foods, hence the big grocery budget.

I don't have a large family or anything, but I find if I prep/cook on Sunday's when I have energy it works much better. I eat on leftovers most of the week, but you could easily prep a few weeknight dinners so they don't require much time/energy during the week. By prep I mean planning, cutting veggies, preping casseroles so they just have to be slipped into the oven, etc...You can pre cook ground beef and use it for multiple things, ditto chicken.
