I rarely buy celery. Not that I don't like it, but I use one or two stalks and then the rest is waste. Not by my design, just by the fact it is too much for me! Now i am finding ways to preserve celery... In depth Info on celery suggests making a Mirepoix out of it and freeze the Mirepoix. Then one could always dehydrate it and use it soups and casseroles later, or a person could make their own Celery Salt. Who knew there where so many choices?
