Tired of lame meals and fast food. Help me stock the larder...

Here's the scenario:
My wife works full time. I work at home, and I'm dad here too. We share the cooking, but frequenty bomb out completely with nothing in the cupboard and no energy/time to go to the store.
I've heard thru the grapevine that there are people out there who have well stocked larders, who can almost always whip up a meal, who eat healthier than we do. That's what I want to accomplish.
Do you have tips on:
1. Staples that I can stock up on, so we don't get stuck evenings with no meal options (other than running out for fast food again)
2. Recipe genres that would enable me (not the most enthusiastic of chefs) to come up with some variety of "30 minute meals". eg. If you stock X and Y and Z, you can always make A and B and C.
3. How you manage to feed the family healthily and well on a regular basis.
