The cost of holiday shopping can quickly add up -- not just the amount put toward gifts, but also on everything else associated with celebrating the season. Last year, consumers spent an average of $802 on holiday gifts, decorations and food, according to the National Retail Federation. That's up nearly 5% from 2013.

Luckily, if you're looking to cut holiday spending costs, you've got options. One way to spend significantly less on many items on your holiday shopping list is to purchase them at dollar stores such as Dollar Tree, Family Dollar and Dollar General.

Here are 11 things you can save a lot of money on by purchasing them at a dollar store.
