I know if you're storing the CD and the booklet in plastic sleeves without the jewel case it's best if you use acid-free sleeves, but what about the outer sleeve for jewel cases itself? Does it matter since the sleeve will only touch the jewel case and not the booklet/CD themselves?

Acid free is primarily for paper.

I've been following this thread with some bemusement because of this point - I've never heard of "acid free" plastic. I suppose there may be paper sleeves for containing CD cases...

Don't use PVC bags, though.
PVC contains plasticisers which can leach out and attack polystyrene. Many power cables and cheap interconnects are sheathed in PVC, which is why they are placed in polythene bags when packaged in expanded polystyrene.
