Blow them out into piles, then mulch them up. Backing over leaves works extremely well for mulching purposes...as does lower engine/blade RPMs. Experiment.

If you need/want to bag, then it is less work/time to mulch first, then bag - as you'll be emptying the bagger less often.

Personally, I only bag Fall leaves for one customer since he's 90+/old-school. This is purely out of respect. ALL my other customers get ALL their leaves mulched - whether in Oct/Nov or Spring clean-up.
.02 // YMMV
