The main purpose of this is to keep the soil from washing out of the hole while the newly planted container is establishing itself.
Use a teabag to cover the hole in the bottom of the pot before filling it with soil. By the time the highly porous tea bag disintegrates, the soil will have generally settled enough that it will not fall through the drainage hole.

Place a drainage tray under containers on apartment balconies to eliminate unwelcome dripping or water trails. And make sure that the pots do not sit in water.
