You could use the Cell menu item Grouping to change from the default
Automatic Grouping to Manual Grouping.

I often used to do that. My sad experience, though, is that sooner or
later this will get you into some sort of trouble, and you'd be much
better off structuring your notebook so as not to have any such
"dangling" cells inside a section but outside any subsection.
