You can simply use Put and Get.

here is a simple example:

In[4]:=
    expr = Expand[ (a+b)^3]
Out[4]=
     3      2          2    3
    a  + 3 a  b + 3 a b  + b

In[7]:=
     expr >> expr.txt

In[8]:=
    !!expr.txt
    a^3 + 3*a^2*b + 3*a*b^2 + b^3

In[9]:=
    expr2 = <<expr.txt
Out[9]=
     3      2          2    3
    a  + 3 a  b + 3 a b  + b

In[11]:=
    Factor[ expr2 ]
Out[11]=
           3
    (a + b)

If you want to append an expression to your file you can do so
with >>> (Append).

I hope this helps.
