I'm thinking of creating concise pages of notes, mainly text, in the form of multiple layers of bullet points. Is there a package that I can give bullet pointed notes and it crams them as tightly on to a page as it can.

Thank you

Consider the savetrees and fullpage packages which try to cram as much stuff onto a page as possible. – marczellm Jun 7 '13 at 15:13

From the LaTeX Wikibook:

If you want tightly-packed lists, use the mdwlist package (included in the mdwtools bundle), which provides compact, "starred" versions of the previous environments, i.e. itemize*, enumerate* and description*. They work exactly in the same way, but the output is more compact. Other packages providing compacted lists are paralist and enumitem. Alternatively, use the memoir class and with \tightlists.
