# Itemize without bullets

I want to use the itemize environment exactly as it works by default, but hide the bullets that would otherwise appear.

Is there an easy way to do this?

You can do this in several ways: for example, by using an empty optional argument for \item (as Jake suggested), or by using the enumitem package to use an empty label, or by redefining \labelitemi; these approaches are illustrated in the following example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\begin{itemize}
\item[] First.
\item[] Second.
\end{itemize}

\begin{itemize}[label={}]
\item First.
\item Second.
\end{itemize}

{\renewcommand\labelitemi{}
\begin{itemize}
\item First.
\item Second.
\end{itemize}
}

\end{document}
