Since you already have it I would just move over to using Lr.
I love Lr since it has all of the image management tools that I could wish for. Personally I just download the images from the camera to folders by year, and then date. I very really work using the folder structure though. I use Lr's Collections, and especially Smart Collections to manage my images. When I download my images I always make sure to keyword them so that they will automatically arrive in Smart Collections based on the keywording. This is great since images can be in multiple Smart Collections based on the combination of keywords and other variables. The other nice thing is that the RAW converter is built in, so you only have the one interface to deal with, just like with Aperture.
The other big thing I like about using Lr is a wealth of output options. You can use the simple export command to produce files that are specifically tailored to the required use. On top you also have modules for printing, web galleries, slide shows, and even photo books. I find the Lr Print module to be the best program that I have used for photo printing. It is also pretty good as it lets you print to a JPEG file to send to a lab.
If you are using the latest Lr Classic CC on subscription it also get you the full Lr mobile to use on any of your mobile devices. You can connect Lr mobile with Lr Classic so that any images that you create on the device are automatically uploaded to you home system, and imported directly to your Lr Catalogue. No need to go though apples system and then have to use a watched folder or manually import the images. You can also put images in a collection that will be synced to Lr mobile, so that you have a 2500 px smart preview available. I find it is a good way to have up to date copies of images I might still be working on available on my phone. This also works if you log onto the Adobe service though a web browser. And you can use it to remote import RAW files to your system too. This is completely different to the fully web based system that the NEW Lr CC uses, and is I think the perfect balance between local and online use of Lr.
