I gotta have some sort of idea of what will be for dinner the next day since I need to defrost the chicken bottoms, cutlets, meat, etc. overnight.

Same same same!

But I really only plan for suppers for mon tues and wed.
Sun night is shabbos leftovers, Thursday night im cooking for Shabbos so thats make your own supper night. Usually some form of sandwich maker/eggs/hot cereal...

Same.
Sun night is leftovers.
Monday we have your Thursday type supper.
So I'm making Tues, Wed, and Thurs. For those days I have a basic menu - Tues is cutlets or ground chicken, Wed is fish and Thurs is chicken bottoms. Thursday supper is easy peasy in a 9x13 in the oven.

I live in a country where people eat later.
We eat dinner around 8 pm. Sometimes a bit later.
Dinner is a light pareve or dairy meal.
Each person organizes themselves a hot lunch when they get home (warm up food or cook a side, etc). I have teens. Lunch is eaten at 3 or 4. If we all get home together, we eat together.

People who eat supper at 5 - do you not eat anything else till bedtime?

And we eat shabbos leftovers till Tues or Wed. We cook up a storm for shabbos and it lasts for a few days.
(This is for lunch, our hot meal of the day).

Op, it sounds like the night before you should decide what you want to serve.
Start preparing by 4pm the latest.
Have backups in your freezer Incase you don’t prepare by 4pm such as frozen pizza, frozen fries, chicken nuggets...
Since I’m not working now I often decide about the nights dinner in the morning instead of the night before.
If I did a big grocery shopping and I bought ground meat and chicken cutlets I’ll often decide in the store that tonight I’ll serve chicken cutlets and tomorrow it will be meatballs.
If I’m taking my kids to appointments after school I’ll decide early enough to either prepare dinner beforehand or buy pizza.
(When all else fails there’s always cereal and milk, packed noodle soup, grilled cheese or sandwiches!)

No, I don't officially eat anything after supper. Sometimes I'll drink a tea or eat an apple, but not eating 3 hours prior to going to bed is very healthy and keeps your metabolism from slowing down and it's easier to maintain/lose weight.
