Put saves data in the current working directory. The current working directory can be set to any directory you have the ability to read/write using SetDirectory. For example, on a Mac SetDirectory["~/Desktop"] will set the working directory to the current users desktop directory. Or assuming the notebook you are using has been saved to the hard drive SetDirectory@NotebookDirectory will set the working directory to the directory containing the notebook this is executed in.
