In brief: Storage site of bile

Bile is made by the liver on a continuous basis.
Bile is not needed in your intestine continuously, only when you eat certain foods. The gallbladder stores the bile whenever you dont eat foods needing it for digestion. When you do eat those foods, the gallbladder is stimulated to empty and push the bile into the intestine. (symptoms from the gallbladder may start when gallstones block this action).
