You have to put them in a directory that is listed in the variable
load-path. Or put them in a directory and add the directory to the variable.

My suggestion:

Create a directory ELisp, where you place all such files, in your home
directory and then add
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/ELisp/"))
to your .emacs.

If you create subdirectories to ELisp you have to add them too, i.e.
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/ELisp/"))
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/ELisp/SubDir1"))
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/ELisp/SubDir2"))
