But with the Leaf, I bought the cabin filter on the way in to my 1-year service, changed it in the parking lot at the dealer, and left the box on the seat with a note that I didn't need or want a cabin filter change. Just in case they were going to get excited about the $80.
I wash and rinse mine out, then let it air dry. They haven't changed from year to year so I literally have a total investment of $27 over 4 LEAFs. I had one, rotated it in and out a few times and then lost track of it so bought another one at a better price. (first one was $16, the 2nd one only $11) So naturally a few weeks after getting the 2nd one, I found the first one so I have a few ready to roll.
I do replace my filters twice a year due to very high pollen issues. Nature is a bit overwhelming here sometimes getting a bit too close for comfort.

I did not hear the branch fall but I did feel it. The epicenter was approximately 25 feet NW of my bed...
