You can either carefully slide them into poly sleeves or use the negative envelopes (I would prefer envelopes). Store them separately from prints, in either an archival file or box. First, so that you don't have negatives and any matching prints in the same place (should something happen to that storage box or area) and second because there could be a reaction between the two and cause degradation.
