You can do this by setting all the cells you want to save (which need not be the entire notebook) to be 'initialization cells' and then using the options inspector to set the notebook option AutoGeneratedPackage to Automatic, After all that, every time you save the notebook, the corresponding .m file will be saved as well. There seem to be a few residual bugs in this mechanism where you have very complicated box structures, but I must say, I still find it the most convenient way to prepare .m files.
