"If you are using bullets to list instructions (in complete sentences)
should you put a period at the end of those bulleted sentences?"
If they are complete sentences and not sentence fragments, then yes, you
ought to put punctuation at the end.

paper and in time learning what not to say." Beryl Bainbridge
