Should I keep the sensors in the anti-static bags or are the bags only needed when shipping?
As the anti-static bags are inconvenient and often too big to put the sensor into a compartment in my electronics box.

The answer is "depends". Devices that have protection diodes on their inputs are probably OK to drop into normal plastic storage draws. Things that are super static sensitive like MOSFETs are probably best kept in their original antistatic packaging.
