How can I prevent my drawings and paper from yellowing over time?

Some paper just yellows over time, especially if left out somewhere where it sees sunlight.Acid-free paper is a partial solution, but not terribly budget-friendly.Is there something else I can do in order to ensure the longevity of my work? I'd be using a variety of pencils and pastels, including charcoal. Is there something I can apply to the paper before or after drawing on it?
