Free Leaf Mulch

The fall leaf raking season has begun where I am and I'm doing my best to round up a year's worth of free mulch.
I brought home my first truckload of leaves this evening and I spotted a second load that I can pick up later this morning.
One load home, one spotted, but I still need at least eight more truckloads before I'm done mulching this year. (I have a lot of flowerbeds and a veggie garden that all need to be mulched this fall.

[NOTE: Gotta go by the local dollar store today and get a load of cardboard to lay under all those leaves. I badly need to get both truckloads spread today since we've got rain moving in by tonight.]

Does anyone else get raked leaves to use as mulch?
If so, how much have you already gotten?

I never thought of this, you would not believe how many leaves I have in my yard!

Might as well use them and your earthworms will love them!
My own earthworms "live in sin" all winter long under those leaves judging by the numbers of tiny baby worms I see each spring.
