Office work & Commuting in the UK after 12 yr gap: Hacks & Tips please!

I will shortly start a new job having worked from home for many years and I've unexpectedly been asked to start ASAP. There's some great advice on Ask about podcasts & commuting and some about 'returning to corporate hell', but I'm wondering about the practicalities of organising your life in advance for a working week, and especially wondering about what I don't know.

Last week for example I went to an induction day & laddered my tights and realised that organised people would have had a back-up pair. So what else will I need back-ups of?
I'll be gone from 6am to 7pm and the aim is to sit down to a family dinner most evenings. I can give instructions to Aspie OH & Manchild to heat things up but cooking will be mine. Any tips to avoid my whole weekend being laundry & cooking?
Also do you select your wardrobe a week in advance? What's the best product for coffee in the car on the go? Backpack for back-up clothing? Bringing lunch into work, (mainly soups & stirfry?)
What I've done so far: Arranged a pick-up service for family prescriptions, started to have supermarket deliver, put all of us on the iCloud for sharing calendar etc., arranged a cleaning service once a week, changed to internet banking (I know, I know...)....what else? How do you stay organised and on top of your commuting life?
