I'm starting a separate thread about this. I'd like to keep the other one about the vacuum itself.
When I got my G4, it came with a ton of Micron Magic paper bags. I couldn't use all of these if I tried.
Therefore, I'd hate to buy more bags.
But, I'm wondering if it would be worth it to buy the HEPA bags. Is there enough of a difference to justify buying them, when I got practically a lifetime supply of paper bags for free?
Keep in mind, this vacuum won't be a daily driver. I'll grab it once in a while, for a little change of pace.
Thanks for your thoughts.

If you don't have allergies use what you have.

Agreed. Although I do have a small supply of Micron Magic cloth bags on hand that came with a Sentria I bought at a thrift store, I've mainly been using the paper ones, either Kirby Generation 3 or EnviroCare, and have had no issues with them. The trick is to replace them whenever they get about two-thirds full.

Oh well. I gave in and bought a small package of HEPA bags on the bay.
I bought them for my Hoover, why not the Kirby.
I also bought the screw for the scuff plate. I think that's what it's called. A ridiculous price to pay for one screw. But, I wanted to have the correct, genuine part. I'm sure I could have gotten one that "would fit" from a hardware store; probably for pennies. But, that's just me.
