Halocho #250 - Right, then Left, then Right

Various times the Torah gives precedence to the right hand. As a result we usually give precedence to the right. When washing one first washes the right hand. When getting dressed one first puts on the right hand side. When putting on shoes one first puts on the right shoe. Regarding Tefillin the Torah requires us to tie them on the left hand. As a result we give precedence to the left when it comes to tying things. When tying ones shoes one first ties the left one. Summary: Put on right shoe, then left shoe, then tie the left then tie the right. Source: Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 3:4 - Danny Sunday, 22 Tevet 5769
