Celery freezes pretty well, but of course, it is not going to look like or taste (same texture mainly) like it does fresh. Wash it well, but make sure it is very dry before freezing, water crystals that form will deteriorate it as times goes on. Onions, green peppers also can be frozen without blanching. Freezing is a convenient way to add these things to meatloaf, soups, etc. while not necessarily having them fresh on hand.

Oh, also, pack it tightly leaving as little air as possible inside the freezing container. This applies to everything you freeze.

Because of the water content in celery it will never be crisp again once frozen and will only be suitable for cooking. You can freeze it blanched or unblanched but blanching will stop the enzymes that cause quality to deteriorate in the freezer.
