You don't have to wait for your subscription to run out before renewing. Any time you purchase additional subscriptions it is always added to the end of your current subscription. No need to worry about wasted time due to overlap since there is none.
To extend your subscription for your group, click the "Extend Features" button in the "Actions" block in the left column of your group's main page. If your subscription has lapsed the button will instead say "Get All Features".
