It doesn't matter as long as you're using both evenly.

Mine always emptied both sides each feeding so it didn't really matter which side we started on. When they were little I would just feel the side that felt more full and go with that one.

sometimes my son only takes one side, sometimes he wants 3 sides(to go back and get more out of the first)...I just switch off on which side I start on each time.

You start with whatever breast you didn't empty at the last feeding. So if you started on your left and ended on your right, but he/she didn't nurse as long on the right breast, start with that one next time. If he/she emptied both, then it doesn't matter.
