Customizing my local setup for mac...Wh?

I am super novice, so please be patient. As I am following along trying to save everything into a Sites file, I am asking myself why. My assumption is to have faster, easier access to the file in question and/or to have it all in one place. However, I really don't know and I'm one that does not blithely do things for no reason. In fact, I'm basically lost by this entire portion of the Wordpress setup. If anyone is feeling really nice, perhaps you could just tell me what this is, why I want to customise it, and how to do it effectively. Thanks. M
