Reusing vacuum cleaner bags

Reusing vacuum cleaner bags

Hi, I've been reading for a while, but this is my first post. I'm wondering if anyone has a good way of, or technique of reusing vacuum cleaner bags. I haven't tried yet but they are really expensive, like $4.50 per bag. I was thinking cutting open a hole and duct taping it back up on both sides. Suggestions?
