I am using the list environment \begin{itemize}\end{itemize} in pdflatex with several \item inside. I want to make each line from inside the environment "itemize" longer so that the length is 1.25\linewidth. I used for this the \begin{minipage}\end{minipage} command, e.g.

\section*{Section 1} 
\begin{minipage}[t][1.2in]{1.25\linewidth} 
\begin{itemize} 
\item here some text in Section 1
\item here some more text Section 1
\item here even some more text Section 1
\end{itemize}
\end{minipage} 


\section*{Section 2}
\begin{minipage}[t][1.2in]{1.25\linewidth}
\begin{itemize}
\item here some text Section 2
\item here some more text Section 2
\item here even some more text Section 2
\end{itemize}
\end{minipage}

Still, between the two sections I have a lot of extra white space. How can I avoid this white space between the 2 minipages? Is there some other way to make each line from inside the itemize environment longer than to use minipage?

Thank you in advance for your help and suggestion.

don't define a height for the minipages!

\begin{minipage}[t]{1.25\linewidth}
