I assume you want to convert your notebook into a .m file - which is a 
simple text file. 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.
