Gregory: Would setting limit.list <- NULL at the start do the trick? See example below:

Analogue of your example:

lower <- 0
upper <- 0
limit.list<-data.frame(lower,upper)
for(i in 1:12) {

    some.data <- rnorm(2)
   lower <- min(some.data)
  upper <- max(some.data)
  one.month <- data.frame(lower, upper)
  limit.list <- rbind(limit.list, one.month) }
limit.list

Approach that doesn't give zeroes at the start:

limit.list <- NULL
for(i in 1:12) {

    some.data <- rnorm(2)
  lower <- min(some.data)
  upper <- max(some.data)

  one.month <- data.frame(lower, upper)
  limit.list <- rbind(limit.list, one.month) }
limit.list
