# Organizing a list of items into two columns

Is it possible in LaTeX to divide the following list of items into two columns:

\documentclass[12pt,letterpaper]{article}

\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\section*{Section 01}
\begin{itemize}[noitemsep,nolistsep]
\item item 1
\item item 2
\item item 3
\item item 4
\item item 5
\end{itemize}

\end{document}


Here is the output:

I would like to have items 1, item 2, item 3 in the left column while item 5 and item 6 on the right one. Would this possible using LaTeX? I am actually looking for something like the following image:

You can use multicol package.

\documentclass[12pt,letterpaper]{article}

\usepackage{enumitem,multicol}

\begin{document}

\section*{Section 01}
\begin{itemize}[noitemsep,nolistsep]
\begin{multicols}{2}
\item item 1
\item item 2
\item item 3
\item item 4
\item item 5
\end{multicols}
\end{itemize}

\end{document}

Thank Kumar. Can I have your thoughts on how I can adjust the location where the column is divided? I mean can I move the border of the cell to the left and right? –  A2009 Aug 5 '14 at 0:41
@A2009 You mean where the column is broken and next column gets started? –  Harish Kumar Aug 5 '14 at 0:45

The following solution worked for me. However, I am not sure if it is the best solution.

\documentclass[12pt,letterpaper]{article}

\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{multicol}

\begin{document}

\section*{Section 01}

\begin{multicols}{2}
\begin{itemize}[noitemsep,nolistsep]
\item item 1
\item item 2
\item item 3
\item item 4
\item item 5
\end{itemize}
\end{multicols}
\end{document}


Here is the output:
