I picked "sometimes" but I don't do "true" OAMC.
I do make giant batches of spaghetti sauce (enough for 12 meals for my family of 5). Otherwise, I do a lot of "prep" work ahead, as I can, so that meal prep is easier on the day we eat the meal. I freeze chicken in bags of breasts, chunks (for stir fries, etc) and strips (for chicken tenders). The same thing with pork--a large pork loin is cut down into chops, chunks and roasts. Having the meat already cut as we'd need it, in the right size portion for one meal, is a timesaver. So I deal with my ingredients as I buy them on sale.
Mostly I prefer to do the main cooking on the day we're doing the eating as I think the food tastes fresher that way.
