There is no more TeX inputs folders like there is in Textures. The  
question is now: are your files going to become formats that will be  
dumped (like plain or LaTeX and that in Textures you would the put in  
TeX formats) or are they simple inputs?

If they are simple inpus then
1. create, if not already created, the folder texmf in the Library  
(Bibliothèque) folder of your home folder
2. again if not present create a subfolder called tex and, if your  
inputs are for plain tex a subfolder called plain that will then  
contain your files otherwise put them in a folder called latex.

So if toto.tex is to be input by plain tex I would put it in ~/ 
and if tata.tex is to be input by latex, then I would put it in ~/
