Please see below an environment itemcpt that I wrote to take less space
than itemize.  This may be sufficient for your purpose.

\newenvironment{itemcpt}{\begin{itemize} \topsep 0pt \partopsep 0pt
\parsep 0pt
\itemsep 0pt \leftmargin -1in \rightmargin 0pt
}{\end{itemize}}

I also use the package called spacing some times - it can be used to
increase or decrease the spacing between text lines.
