I was wondering the same, and it was tedious to find out:
It took me 6 hours ....
there a at least two hurdles, depending what you want to do:
write your code into one cell and make this cell an initialisation cell.
the last entry should be Exit;
then save your notebook.
now save another version of your notebook as *.m file
this file you can call via command line:
math -run "<<script.m"
(this is described elsewhere, I assume you have linux or OS X)
math points to the mathematica kernel, for OS X you have to create this alias. this is described elsewhere
If you use any command that requires a front end, then you will see an error message when you run this line from terminal because the Kernel does not have a front end for these functions.
in that case put this line/command in an enclosing
UsingFrontEnd[ your statement goes here ];
This will start a fronted if required, and your code executes as in the front end / notebook version.
