Don't forget to suss out the ads and then plot your route based on what is most important for you to get. If you don't get the paper or want to take a peek early, you can google "black friday ad's" and find lots of links to the ads online. More than anything, make sure you stay relaxed and enjoy... don't get stressed. My sister used to make us bagels with cream cheese and bacon to munch on while we stood in line at Toys R Us and chatted. Be careful not to pick up lots of extra gifts just because they are cheap... that can wreck havoc on your budget. Just get what you need and head on home.
Good Luck and be sure to come back and tell us what bargains you got this year :)
