I store both raws (nef) and jpgs ina Pictures subfolder called ORIGINALS. Files are divided in folders and subfolders by date: years and months. In case of special events I made subfolders for that particular event inside the correct year and month. An example, PICTURES/ORIGINALS/2012/MARCH.
I use Picasa for viewing and managing jpgs and lightroom for nefs, picasa shows only jpgs and lightroom only nefs and this is perfect! :)

my workflow, download from camera onto an external HD. Then I use Scooby Renamer to make the date yymmdd-image#.jpg. I use the same tool to name batches of similar images after the image number with a title. When I have enough images to fill a DVD I make one as an archive of master images. I copy the images to a second external HD to have a backup. I change the size to 2048 of these copies and then use PREVIEW or Aperture to trash bad images, and tweak those needing tweaking of color, crop, etc. Then I import into an iPhoto Library, going thru the lot to pick my best and second best images (5 and 4 stars respectively). The best images I "sign" using iWatermark before posting on the web. I move the image number to the end of the file name for these smaller and signed images to signal they are the processed derivatives. I have a seperate folder for PROCESSED IMAGES where I store "masters" where I have Photoshopped or done extensive editing, cropping, combining etc. I hope this helps?
