Leave the clippings on the ground in the fall.

Generally bagging your clippings is more of a preference thing but leaving your cuttings on your lawn is also benefitial since that too is organic material which breaks down and improves soil health. During the summer I would bag every other cut for the most part or when in times I let it grow too high. But for the fall, I take the bag off the mulching mower and let the cuttings be on the lawn. This falls in line with my #3 tip of mulching the leaves, so just mulch it all to give that last layer of protection and nutrients going into winter.
