Whether it's extra holiday cash, supplementing household income or for flexibility, working from home is key for so many.

"I have a daughter, so it's kind of hard to find jobs you can do with children at home and make at least a decent amount of money or just enough," mom Kimberly Bockmann said.

But consumer blogger and Rather-Be-Shopping.com founder Kyle James has compiled a list of the 11 best work from home jobs that are not only legit but also can help you make money between $12 to $45 an hour.

Most of these jobs are entry-level positions and don't require any special skills, but all require reliable internet service and a computer.

1. Search Result Evaluator -- Average pay: $12-$15 per hour

2. Content Writer -- Average pay: $16-$32 per hour

3. Captcha Typing Job -- Average pay: Varies on submissions

4. Resume Writer -- Average pay: Up to $25 per page

5. Transcriber-Non Medical (requires certification) -- Average pay: $10-$25 per hour

7. Customer Support Representative -- Average pay: $10-$16 per hour

"These jobs are great," James said. "You can work from home and set your own hours with many of them, and it's a great way to earn some money."
James said he has done the research on these jobs and warns job seekers to always check with the Better Business Bureau to review a company.

He also warns that if a company asks for cash for materials or training, that's a red flag.
