Black Friday is a frenzy to say the least. If you're going to make the effort to shop at 2 a.m., you need to have an extremely detailed plan to keep up with the best of them.
Look through store ads, check websites and compare prices. Plan out exactly where you want to go, the top items you want from each place and the most efficient way to make the rounds, allowing for an hour or more of waiting and check-out time. If possible, map your route throughout each store to the departments you need to hit, but don't feel you have to stick to it. Being flexible is important. Check on store hours, coupons and other Black Friday policies. Being prepared is your best bet to get what you want.
