As in I'm not going to wait 4 weeks then try to mulch. I'm mowing still during "leaf season" so I think it just works better. Sometimes the final clean up can be a lot but usually with the weekly mulching it ends up being just making sure all the beds are blown out and leaves mulched. I'll take away if needed. I usually leave at the curb for the town. I don't have a kit just mulch blades, not the wavy ones but the ones with the 4 "teeth". Shreds them pretty good. Just need multiple passes.

I pretty much do the same thing as you. It works for me. I however have to start the removal process early on a few places. The leaves get over baring within a month to the point I can't keep up. That's when I start bagging and remove them. No curbside pick up here.
