When I got home tonight, one of our neighbours with a huge tree outside their house was busy bagging all the leaves. She doesn't have a vacuum / blower so there's now 30 bags outside her house awaiting collection. Our Black & Decker blower/mulcher did a great job on our tree - I sucked up all the leaves last night and they fitted in a single sack when mulched. 'Course our tree is a lot smaller, but I reckon Christie would have been able to get everything in 10 sacks if she'd had a mulcher. Great investment, even though it only gets used for a couple of weeks in a year.
