I am sorry that your firm has "kinda abandoned" sketches on trash I for one have used it for years and still do today. That seems to be the essence of one problem the profession has with the "gimme generation" in architecture it is from this white onion skin where your "looking for something creative" can be found.

Call me crazy too as that is the only way to quickly get to as many "schematic" options before looking into the screen. As for storing them, flat files work best and can be filed just like the other paperlike drawing files, which I assume your firm keeps in storage also. Fold brown butcher paper in half as a triangle, black marker label them and store them away on top of each other in sequence...any Home Depot has this paper...BTW down time should be spent developing a "detail" library for your firm.
