Check out job bidding sites like oDesk and Guru; you should be able to find some legit type-at-home jobs.

Peace, love, happiness, and of course PROSPERITY,

I enjoy making money writing. It is one of the more common ways that people make money at home. You can check out the writing folder here to see what this line of work is all about. I have been making money from home this way for about 3 years now.

Read through the stickies and folders here and listen to the women that are already successfuly working from home. Doing this should help you to get where you want.

I agree about looking into transcription. Pure data entry jobs are tough to come by. And beware if any try to charge you an up front fee.

Ive been working for a call-center company Liveops for about 3 years now, and absolutely love them. Most data entry jobs tend to either be scammy or pay very little in my opinion. Most money seems to come from direct sales jobs over the phone. Here's a list of a few of them:
Liveops and ACD Direct are the ones I like the most out of that list.

Default Freelancing

The best place to find quick assignments is the freelance sites, but I can PM you more. Just be sure to build a good profile on a freelance site.

Gorge Warehouse, Key for Cash, and Working Solutions normally have data entry positions available. Do a google search for more info about these companies.

Default They Are Hard To Come, But They Do Exist

I have a few listed, but I have had luck on Guru.com with finding data entry. I personally don't suggest Odesk, because the pay in my opinion is extremely low, but I do know of a few places that aren't common.

Tracidb80-

Wow, I see what you mean! I took a quick look at Odesk just now. I saw jobs at $1/hr. Jeez, the ONLY way I could afford to work for $1/hr. is IF I had NO kids, NO pets, lived in a multi-generational home that was mortgage-free for the last 100 years, and my mom cooked for me (after buying the food). Too bad I have kids, like pets, live in one of the more expensive states in the nation, and like to grocery shop at Whole Foods. I guess I won't be working for $1/hr!

Added: To provide something useful,
I second the "try transcription" folder. At least, even though you'll likely start at off at a low hourly, you will improve over time to a decent hourly once you gain speed (even though you'll be doing "more" than just typing). (I've had more success with medical transcription (around $10/hourly, although that was only working about 2 hours a day, I'm pretty sure with more "practice" i.e. working full days, I'd have managed to gain speed.) I had less luck with focus groups, etc. where you've got multiple people talking at once.
