How the data will be stored/saved in memory

Hello guys,

Consider I have a USB flash memory with capacity of 8 GB. That is, it can stores 8 billion bytes or 8 billion * 8 bits (approximately)!! How those huge amount of data can be stored in a small USB flash memory?
I've heard that each bit should be exclusively stored in a snip called flip-flop. So there should be (about) 8,000,000,000 * 8 flip-flops in such a tiny USB flash. It's incredible!

This article explains how flash memory works:

Flip-flops are used in some times of memory. This is volatile storage and all data is lost when power is removed.

It is amazing indeed when you consider that there are flash memory sticks no bigger than your 8GB model that can store 256GBs. I have a 128GB model myself and it works perfectly.
