It would be really useful if there was an extra text field for short notes on budget items.

When I create a new (mixed) budget at the beginning of the year, for any individual category, I may have several entries covering various periods during the year, or one entry with a total amount for the year. In both cases, it would be really useful if I could enter a short note next to each entry to remind me what the amount is for and/or how I arrived at the amount, both during the year, but also as a history to assist when creating new budgets in coming years.

At the moment I keep a separate spreadsheet where I enter those short notes, but every time I make a change to the budget in MD, I have to also make the change in the spreadsheet.
