Anchoring Vapor Barrier

I have recently placed a 6 mil poly vapor barrier in my crawlspace part of which is below grade.

What is the best, easiest, and least expensive method to anchor this poly or are these characteristics exclusive of each other.

Thanks for your advice.

If it were me I would tape the joints in the plastic and then use caulk to adhere the plastic to the walls of the crawlspace. That way it is 1 big piece and glued to the walls. Since you do not get in there very often it should stay in place. Or you could just place rocks or bricks around the edge every so often and maybe a few in the middle.
