Apologize accept because debian-mentors is for new developpers, not
newbies. For your question, 

dpkg --get-selections > packages.list
dpkg --set-selections < packages.list

from dpkg --help:

  dpkg --get-selections [<pattern> ...]   get list of selections to stdout
  dpkg --set-selections                   set package selections from stdin
